Stop providing personal printers for employees' desks

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

I am new to the government and was shocked to find out that I will have my own printer on my desk. This is a totally unnecessary cost to the taxpayers. Not only does it encourage excess printing using paper and ink since it is so "convenient", but it discourages healthy movement by employees by asking them to get up out of their chairs to retrieve something they printed. Providing a printer to every employee is not a common practice in the private sector and I think it can easily be eliminated in the government.

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