Implement energy saving technology on Government installations using current ideas & technology to generate an energy surplus which can be donated to impoverished area or public education institutes, such as wind generation units, solar power generation plants, rain barrels for water reclamation, bio-diverse recycling for energy generation
Generate an Executive order mandating all Federal Agencies to establish Telework policies guaranteeing minimum 2 days a week to all qualified employees. This will reduce traffic, pollution, infrastructure, and agency energy overhead costs.
During snow/weather emergencies, mandatory Telework should be implemented.
Reduce the number of desktop computers and networking infrastructure that cost ever increasing amounts to service and protect. Replace networked computers where possible with cheaper handhelds and netbooks with no loss of productivity.
Consolidate all telecommunications in the Defense Information Systems Agency. The Military Departments and Defense Agencies have duplicate systems that overlap. We move the circuits and services to the DISN, turn off the duplicative circuits, and reduce overseas telecommunications staffs.

Contractors given the contract to renovate the main campus has evidently done something wrong and it appears that it will cost the agency lots of money and is inconvencing employees. What ever the cost, I believe the contractor should absorb the damages and not come out of agency funds.
