Accept more than 0.1% of our ideas.

56.000 ideas have been given, yet only a few dozen have been used in the budget?

 

Our ideas deserve to be heard! Require agencies to use a task force (or even just a high level manager, as necessary) with a reasonable amount of power to post, review, give feedback, and implement our ideas.

Use USPS instead of FEDEX or UPS

All agencies should use USPS for all mailing needs, even overnight, as the USPS also provides this. Not only is it less expensive but the money stays within the government. Additionally it would give the USPS much needed income. This would save the government millions of dollars annually.

Reduce vampire energy

The Energy Information Institute estimates that 10% of average electric bill pays for are not being used, but that percentage could be higher if computers, laptops and other equipment are left on or in standby mode. A simple yet effective solution would be to replace current dumb power strips with smart power strips that can sense and auto shutoff when attached computers and devices are in off state. To implement this ...more »

End of FY Spending by Government (Offer Incentives to Agencies)

As we all know, at the end of the FY each agency scrambles to spend what is left in their budgets. Most of the spending is careless and wasteful. The primary reason for this is because the departements know that if they do not exhaust their budget, they will not get those funds back in their next budget. President Obama should recognize this wasteful spending and offer enticing incentives for agencies that do not ...more »

Congressional Pension Plan Correction

Save lots of money by revising the congressional pension plan and placing members of congress on the same pension/retirement plan as federal workers. Why should a congressman or senator who serves only one term receive an excessive large pension for those short years?

System for Reporting Excess Travel Costs - The Start of Saving

Time and Time again, Federal Employees on official travel are charged more for flights, hotels, etc. than the average customer. There are several reason why this is the case...from the inability to use conventional travel sites(such as Kayak, expedia, etc) to the the fact that for some reason the fed just pays more. I think that there should be a government-wide system (preferably online/electronic) created for fed employees ...more »

Timesheet papercopy

During every pay period, we have to hand-sign a hard copy of our timesheet. This is a waste of paper. When an employee logins into the HRMS system (using a password) and puts in his/her time, he/she abides by the time he/she puts in. When the branch chief/manager reviews and approves it, the branch chief should be able to approve it electronically instead of hand-sign a hardcopy of each employee's timesheet. If the ...more »

Use More Telework to Reduce Office Space and energy requirements

Many agencies and departments are likely leasing space in expensive office buildings. By achieving a higher proportion of employees who can either telework full time or work from their homes two or more days per week, the government can reduce the square footage of leased office space by having employees "time-share" multi-use offices when they do have to come into the office. This would be a "win-win" work-life situation ...more »

Siva P. Lingam

Make the retirement age of 70 mandatory to all Federal employees. This will bring opportunities for young people. Further, after 70, the individual's performance is normally below average (age factor).

Eliminate Printing and Distribution of Paper Calendars

Eliminate the annual printing of government calendars that identify paydays, pay periods, and federal holiday information. Calendar information such as this is available online at the OPM site and can easily be viewed and downloaded. Eliminating the annual printing and distribution of this information to federal employees will save the government paper, money, time, and resources. Funds and resources for this effort ...more »

Required Relocation

Resident inspectors at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission are required to move at least every 7 years (that is at least 210 people moving every 2-7 yrs). A large fee is paid to a relocation company (over $100,000) to handle all the house paperwork/moving expenses/house hunting etc for each move. Set up an automated website like eTravel for relocation and let the individuals organize this themselves through cheaper companies ...more »

From what I understand each agency has an authorized amount for the spending budget each year, and the monies have to be used, for the catorgorized purpose, be it eletronices, staff support, etc. and each year all the amount needs to be spent for just that purpose, or the agency may not receive the same amount for the next year, with that being said, money is used on computers, and other office equipment, so that is shows ...more »
