JEFFERSON CITY — Gov. Jay Nixon's administration said it has saved nearly $2 million through a review of statewide contracts and a reduction in travel reimbursements.

Nixon initiated a review of state contracts when he took office in January.

As a result, the Office of Administration says it renegotiated the leases at more than 60 buildings, renegotiated or consolidated janitorial services at more than 40 facilities, canceled some contracts and improved bidding on other projects. It said those steps saved $1.2 million.

Nixon's administration said it saved about $700,000 by setting a lower mileage reimbursement rate for employees who use their own vehicles for state business.
