End Temporary Seasonal and NTE Employment to Permanent Seasonal and PFT

I suggest you change Temporary Seasonal employees to Permanent Seasonal Employees and Not To Exceed employees in to Permanent Full Time employees, expecially those that come back year after year. We spend so much money on hiring, training, and separating our Temporary Seasonal employees when we could be using this time and money to do meaningful work. Also I know from experience how discouraging it is to work as a NTE ...more »

TSP Matching for Military

The TSP is a wonderful benefit for all federal employees. Unfortunately, our military men and women do not enjoy the benefit of TSP matching.

 

Matching for any employee is a huge bonus, but a large expense for the government. I propose that we reduce matching to 2% for civilian employees and give a matching TSP of 2% for military personnel.

UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRATION SOLUTION:SELF FUNDED DETERRENT PREVENTING THE HIRING OF UNDOCUMENTED WORKERS

I suggest a new type of proactive solution in the form of an enforcement system to deter the hiring of undocumented workers (illegal aliens, deportable/inadmissible aliens) through self funded economic incentives (monetary rewards) generated by fines. It will encourage the public to report violators and discourage employers from hiring undocumented workers. A percentage of the fines levied on employers of undocumented ...more »

Increase the mandatory retirement age for 6c covered for CBP officers and agents in non-field positions

In this day and age 57 is still young. Both of these organizations are still growing at a rapid pace and the leadership positions within these organizations need seasoned leadership. To avoid the "Brain Drain" that is occurring and keep younger and more CBPOs and Border Patrol agents in the field where they are needed, certain jobs within the organization, at Headquarters and abroad, should be able to be filled with operational ...more »

Government-wide Early Retirement and $50,000 Separation Bonus

Approximately 50 percent of Federal Employees are eligible to retire over the next five years. Notwithstanding, in recent years the actual number of retirements has been very low. The average age of Federal Government employees is now approaching 50 years old. Qualified individuals who are seeking employment from the outside are finding it very difficult to enter the Federal Government because most jobs are encumbered ...more »

Stop Improper Payments for Entitlement and Retirement Benefits

Stop improper payments by requiring federal agencies to verify periodically that individuals are still elegible (including proof of life) to receive federal benefits, such as retirement, social security, and other entitlements. Federal agencies should establish the frequency (e.g., every 3, 5, 7 yrs.) in which they will require such the verification from the individual receiving the benefits. This would be in addition ...more »

Change military type retirements

Eliminate military type retirement payments until typical retirement age (60) unless the person is incapable of working due to injury or is not working another full time job. As many folks know, employees that retire with a military type retirement start drawing their full retirement pay immediately. They can retire with 20 or more years of service. At 20 years they 50% of their pay and can get up 100% of their pay ...more »

Succession Planning – Ten Lists of Ten

Succession Planning – Ten Lists of Ten Succession planning seems ad hoc at best. There are many stories about the institutional knowledge that is lost when a worker leaves and a wave of retirements is expected in the next few years. I realize that it was never a likelihood that a successor could be brought in and trained by the person leaving (if such was desirable), but it seems to me that there should be a more ...more »

Eliminate the 5 year rule for FEHB.

Eliminate the 5 year rule for FEHB. Many employees have health care through our spouses however, to get FEHB in our retirement we have to sign up for FEHB 5 years prior at a cost to the government of anywhere between $50K-$60K for the 5 years and that doesn't account for lost time in submitting paperwork. Not only will it save dollars but it will give many more people the opportunity to take retirement at an earlier ...more »

Welfare & Social Security giving away money

I suggest looking into welfare, social security and any other organizations that supplies money or other items such as housing, loans, etc. There are non americans collecting on this because they can. There are people that do not speak english, just came to this country a few years ago, never paid any taxes and are now collecting social security benifets. They are also getting free health care (not really, the tax ...more »
