Dallas school administrators are ending an outsourcing project with FedEx/Kinko’s that was supposed to save taxpayers millions of dollars but instead doubled school spending on printing and copying. Expanding the deal to include all schools could cost taxpayers nearly $100 million over three years, administrators said Thursday, more than double the contract’s original amount.
