Have a clearinghouse for office supplies, furniture, computer equipment, uniforms, anything that people can use that they may not need anymore, or have a surplus on, that other people may need. Instead of always buying new stuff, save money by using something already purchased, or reusing. May also reduce waste. Uniform caches for all agencies that use them, so not always buying new ones, especially if in good condition, and offering them for temporary employees also. Office furniture from remodels or vacating buildings can be reused. Maybe buyer only pays shipping?
