Stop the "If you don't use it, you lose it" policy !

This policy, official or implied, exacerbates wasteful spending in pretty much every agency and every department. The policy creates inefficiencies because it promotes a wasteful environment, by creating 'fear' that if a budget is not fully exhausted by the end of a fiscal year, that budget line item will be reduced for next year. While many departments try to save money throughout the year, they then go on a spending ...more »

Government to go Paperless!

I suggest Government agencies to provide paperless service to work with Americans. As private companies are going paperless by providing e-Bill services. That will reduce the postage and paper usage. Therefore, it will reduce our carbon footprint for wasting papers.

Money's awastin!!

Do away with the useless "poster" program. It costs $2.75 to mail each poster, plus the cost of the poster itself which is a high gloss poster, then the cardboard box is rather spendy particularly when you ship them all over the country to all the various government offices. I'm talking about all the posters they send out to include the ones for recognizing "special" groups. We wouldn't have a problem with racism if ...more »

Limit computer access because of waste

Set up all government computers to access (.gov) sites only unless actually needed for job. As a supervisor, I have a hard enough time keeping employees off the internet and they just added Facebook, My Space, and Twitter access for everyone. What on earth are we doing? That's like laying a cookie on a baby's high chair tray and telling the baby not to touch. There have to be billions of hours wasted by people surfing ...more »

Controlling Telecommunication Costs

Make available to each governement office an on-line report of outgoing phone calls (name, phone number and charges) for each phone in the office. The report should be reviewed by supervisors. Each employee should review the report for his or her phone calls; reimburse the government for personal calls listed; and as appropriate be encouraged to refrain from making long distance personal phone calls. It will help reduce ...more »

We need the best

To get the best and brightest in management/decision making positions all job annoucements for supervisors or for grade level GS-13 and higher should be required to include some relocation costs. Agencies appear to be using the lack of relocation reimbursement to reduce competition in what is suppose to be merit promotions.

Make "INHERENTLY GOVERNMENTAL" Mean Something Again

I can't believe how much we outsource which seems so clearly inherently government. Take for example, the recent Washington Post article about how much intelligence activities we outsource to private firms. Do we really want such institutional knowledge flowing outside government?

A better way to approach the day

I suggest you begin with looking into the affects of happy workers within the workforce when animated through such applications as the Fish! philosophy matched with people actively engaged in their jobs aimed towards a business oriented goal while serving the public. To help foster within the civil service a sense of pride in serving our country as much as those who do so abroad and in arms, as each function plays a ...more »

OIG ABUSES

I suggest you hold the OIG accountable for melicious persecutions and attacks of investigations. Eliminate the discriminatory practices that the OIG uses in their "investigations". Hire more minority officers to do investigations. Have an independent review panel to review a percentage of investigations to determine the legality of these attacks that ruin peoples lives. Hold the oIg accountable for their actions. ...more »
