Build Business Process Architectures the same way across all of the Government.

All Business Process Models should be built using the same symbols, the same rules for the use of the symbols and on top of the same underlying data structure. Using this approach, every architect would be able read every architecture, the same way that every reader of music can read all music. And, computers would be able to read every architecture. Architectures could be analyzed to automatically determine if the ...more »

Business Systems Data Deduplication

Data Deduplication would reduce the cost of IT infrastructure by more than half and result in far fewer technical and administrative errors. An example is that two DoD ERP Systems where one system passes 8.2 million transactions to the second system which passes 7.5 million transactions back - each day. This communication adds nothing of value. The result is that the ratio of DoD IT overhead to systems operations ...more »

Executive Office of the President

Qualify tax cuts for businesses, stimulate the private economy in bipartisan fashion.

Since the IRS is not an available category, my suggestion is this: Rather than giving tax cut to businesses on the correct assumption that they will create more jobs as a result, and rather than increasing taxes on businesses to increase social services, qualify the tax cuts. By "qualify," I mean require a proportionate percentage of thier workforce to be hired in order for the businesses to qualify for the tax cuts. ...more »

If they are US companies, then assess them the previous tax. If they are expatriated, treat them as imports, impose tariffs, and remove the made in the USA labeling.

IRS- Legacy Park 001 Every year we have a problem identifying what line on the forms corresponds to data items on the BMF Masterfile. There isn't really a clear path of documentation from Core records layouts that we see back to the actual line that taxpayers use on the form. IMF has the luxury of a T line book, which documents this information for Individual Masterfile, but no equivalent exists for BMF/BRTF. Whenever ...more »

Faster ways of resolving worker complaints of labor law violations

We need to do more to help American workers with the resources that we got. Protect their wages and safety and health. My plan is to be implemented to protect workers’ wages, but it can also be implemented for the occupational safety and health of workers as well. In 2009, the Department of Labor (DOL) secured $137.6 million in back wages (wages that should be paid but are not because workers are paid below the minimum ...more »
