Furniture replacement

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

Current budget is extremely limited. Right now, I have an excellent 5 spoke office chair with good back support, which I am not allowed to donate due to GSA rules. Change the rules, inspect the chair, it is a $280 chair, after I retire, it can be passed on. It will pass safety inspection; why should taxpayers buy another chair? The one I use has the seat slipping down to the ground, I pull it up, over and over all day, and no back support. This is a cost-savings. Also, why do we need such expensive "executive furniture" for the high level managers? This is taxpayer money, let alone multiple desks in multiple locations, costing several thousand dollars each. It is a desk, put a limit on the price of a desk for ANYONE, ANYWHERE.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
