Reduce physical travel by 25% through use of Virtual Meetings (e.g., WebEx/LiveMeeting).
This reduces cost and environmental impact. Reducing hours/days spent traveling increases productivity.
Agencies should target specific C/I/Os and divisions with goals for reducing travel and replacing with virtual / telepresence meetings. This includes conferences, training, seminars.
Savings should be measures by travel hours / days per person reduced from 2010 numbers.
This includes cross-campus meetings. CDC has 7 buildings within a 15 mile radius. Many meetings are held without virtual conferencing components (e.g., conference line only, no shared computer workspace). Physical travel reduces productivity by wasting time driving between work sites.
