Abstract:

One of the most significant findings of the study lies in the area of increased effectiveness and reduced costs which will result from centralization of communications services. Not unlike most other states, Mississippi agencies have attempted to solve communications problems on an individual agency basis. As a result, each agency which has a specialized communications system has also built up a small communications staff to deal with the problems inherent in the acquisition, operation and maintenance of these systems. In this document, several changes are recommended in telephone practices within the state government. Ultimately, the state should acquire an integrated, dedicated telephone network to handle the problems of intrastate toll services, and to serve as a central backbone network for other communications such as data, telemetry, control and voice.
