The PIV cards should start to be used for their intended purposes instead of just for entering and exiting buildings in most agencies. All computers should have a card reader for login and especially for approval of documents (i.e. electronic signatures). Right now In order to get something simple signed, such as payment request, leave notices, or simple memos, it usually takes multiple printings and scannings. By the time it gets back to the person who requested the approval it’s half the time unreadable. If we started using these cards the way we should, we would drastically cut down on the problems of time, wasting paper, ink, and electricity from the scanners and printers.
