Space utilization review

Review all office space requirements and reduce office space authorizations accordingly, eliminate unnecessary rented facilities first!

In the DoD I have personnally seen organization leadership "empire build" by claiming space and moving people in vacant rooms when they already have more than enough space. There is one current squadron commander that has over 54,000sq ft of space for less than 100 people and yet he has laid claims to multiple offices in other areas because he "needs the space." Rather than having these luxury waiting areas with big screen TV's, armoirs, cabinets and various fooseball, air hockey and pool tables, lets use the space we need and reuse the space we dont more efficiently rather than building new facilities or renting new temporary buildings. Also there is no reason that we can't share facilities with other federal agencies rather than having dedicated buildings that are only authorized for one office.

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