Have email and telephone voice mail access to leaving trouble shooting messages for IRM.

At this VA facility staff members are unable to report difficulties via email. Must call and leave message on a voice mail that seems to often get deleted by the staff picking up th e mail messages in the morning. Time saver and money saver as therei would be an electronic record of the situation ready for trouble shooting.

Electronic Downsizing -- Save a billion here and there?

Cost of electronic document storage: $20-30 GB/year?

combining VPN/DSL lines

All the little agencies at post wish to each have their own little internet VPN. Each one has their own funding so each one orders an DSL line, router, ect. It would be better to combine all agencies DSLs into one high speed line at the Embassy and share it. Less routers, less circuits/costs.
