HIRING FREEZE for ALL Federal Agencies

***Within DoD and across ALL Federal Agencies, implement a hiring FREEZE.***This will force all Agencies to do more with less and will also require all levels of management to become player coaches.

As personnel leave the Agency or retire (normal attrition), they will NOT be replaced.... more »

Eliminate AFSO-21 and Lean Programs

Eliminate the AFSO-21 and Lean initiatives programs. These don't work and too much money/resources are spent on trying to keep them open.

Entry level US Government jobs, should be treated like the Millitary, come here, get skills, and then go do useful work. Cut management by at least 50%, it's almost all useless bureaucrats anyway. Use that money... more »

Safety Equipment: Boots

The Government buys every employee on the work floor a new pair of boots each calendar year. THey do not buy cheap boots, but top named brands like Red Wing. I understand that there are folks who literally have pairs of new boots at home and are still using the ones they first received!

These boots are anywhere from $80 to $120 or more. You can see how this can add up quickly. With maybe a thousand people in the... more »

Lean/Six Sigma Duty Assignment

Lean 6 Sigma is the ultimate investment tool for developing and improving process efficiency in the corporate and public sectors. Eliminating wasteful processes will not only increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the organization but will provide an enormous cost savings throughout.

Every organization operates in a unique manner. So, if you’re not assigned to every site and know exactly how each site functions... more »
