HHS is renting space in Frederick, Maryland for its COOP (Continuity of Operations) emergency use. The warehouse, fully outfitted with special heavy duty IT systems capacity, desks, break rooms, telephones, laptops, changing rooms, bathroom facilities, etc, is enormous and EMPTY 99% of the time. We must be paying a lot for this overflow space which may never be used. Let's offer it as an alternate telecommuting and AWS site, and encourage its full use by employees.
