Office Space Limitations

OMB needs to establish an average usable area for office space. GSA measured this in 2001 and it was 230 square feet. Most businesses use 150 sf or less. OMB needs to ban private offices or limit them to 2% of the area of owned or leased office facilities. Heads of Agencies should be like Martha Johnson of GSA and sit in a cubical like their staff. Would show leadership. Analysis has shown that shrinking in place and not moving saves the most money the fastest.

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