Stop Mandating Outdated, Slow Telework Laptops

Recently, people who want to telework were assigned individual Dell laptops to use, rather than using a client to log in from a person computer.

I understand that this is for security purposes, but the fact is these computers are so slow and outdated that they make teleworking a waste of time. They take up to 30 minutes to turn on and connect, grind to a halt when accessing the remote desktop, and crash often.

Some... more »

Provide Laptop/PAD technology to eliminate paper cost

Preparing for meetings requires printing out any or every document that was sent electronically through email. The majority of these documents have double digit page numbers often including screen shots. Depending on the meeting size, those same documents have now been multiplied by the number of attendees. During the meeting, notes are jotted on them, and when it’s all over, are either filed away or shredded/recycled... more »

Powerful Savings: Laptops vice Desktops

Our nation should adapt an Energy Conservation Law such as Japan has done. Looking at the results of Fujitsu, this adjustment will help our nation financially.

Savings on unclassified cell phone/laptop/desktop expenses

I propose that the Gov't either gets completely out of the unclas cell phone/laptop/desktop business; or they get completely into the business.

This may sound contradictory, but please read on.

Conservatively, 95% of government employees have a personal cell phone and a personal laptop and/or desktop computer. Similarly, this same population has a monthly bill for cell phone and internet service.

Many U.S. gov't... more »

Stop issuing laptops for people not authorized to work at home

I did not request a laptop but was handed one last year "just in case I want to check on my emails when I am away from the office." When I fell ill, I asked to work at home because I had the laptop but my manager denied my request because I did not have a prior authorization (essentially paperwork) to work from home.

The purchase and issuance of laptops and physical workplace policies need to be evaluated for consistency.... more »
