Reduce delays/paperwork when transferring someone to a new job within the government.

I transferred from one DOI agency to another. I have worked for the Federal government for over 12 years. Yet Homeland Security spent 3 weeks checking me out, which prevented me from doing my new job - I could not get on the computer.

Completing Tasks in a very Timely Fashion

My suggestion is to update the computer system we currently use. This agency now has a daily "Workload Listing" that includes "To Do" items. An individual employee checks their workload listing first thing in the morning, and then begins their day by working on a task at hand that must be performed. Any time of day, a supervisor can assign an individual employee a "To Do" item that could be much more critical than ...more »

Efficiency Equals Small

Mr. President: All successful businessmen and leaders know that operational efficiency of any enterprise of substantial size, and the associated costs, is inversely proportional to the size of the organization. The larger the organization, the less efficient it will be. As such, the only way that efficiency can be restored is to reduce the size of the huge bureaucracy called Federal government.

Civilian Fitness Program

Do away with the Physical fitness and wellness program for civilians. We let them go to the gym 3 hrs per week and then end up letting them work overtime or comp time to make up the work they missed. Trying to set up a meeting to work around gym time is a waste of effort. We need to be productive and there is no data to show that this program is returning any value. If it is kept consider shutting down the offices ...more »

Flexible Spending

Raise the Flexible Spending Account (FSA) limits back up to $5000. Most people can't go long form (Schedule A) for medical expenses and people that have special needs children go through that money in the first 5 months of the year.

Money and Environment

Waterless Urinals are the answer to saving money and reducing our footprint in an incredible way. Conventional urinals use between one to three gallons of water per flush. Thus, replacing conventional urinals with waterless versions yields significant water savings. For example, in a workplace with 1,000 men, replacing conventional urinals with waterless urinals would result in savings of approximately 1.56 million ...more »

Require Radio Frequency licensing Fees

I suggest you charge organizations fees for licensing and maintaining radio frequencies. The users can be charged a fee based on time and KHz of bandwidth used. The reason is the radio spectrum is a natural resource and maintaining this resource efficiently is costly to both the Dept of Commerce and FCC. Maybe this would encourage users to be more efficient and vendors to narrowband equipment.

Individual United States citizens whose annual income is below the United States annual per capita income may be permitted to lobby members of Congress. ...more »
