WVU finds ways to save $12 million a year
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- West Virginia University has found ways to save more than $12 million a year.
The savings include about $3.4 million in reduced energy costs resulting from infrastructure improvements.
Other measures include changing vendors for copying services and switching to a different workers' compensation company.
President James Clements told The Dominion Post that the savings are significant for a general budget of about $1 billion.
A website created by the university lists measures that have been taken and how much money has been saved. The website is http://planning.wvu.edu/budget_planning/wvu-budget-savings.
