Reduce unneccessary expenditure of electrical services

Through employment of simple conservational methods, the United States government stands to realize a reduced financial expenditure for the electrical services it purchases.

Reduce paper waste & furnishing costs at CBP

CBP has an enormous work force and with that an enormous waste of paper.
