Dual Monitors to Reduce Paper Usage

Provide all federal employees that complete significant amounts of computer based research and writing with a dual monitor work station. I do most of my research and writing on my computer, but given the lack of screen real estate, end up printing my research materials so I can reference them quickly and easily while I draft documents. A dual monitor set up would allow me to leave research tasks on one screen, with... more »

Inmate Pay is a waist of $$ Paper 2.6 million copies each year

1. Paper waist 2.6 million pieces a year

I work for the Bureau of Prisons and we currently have 217,000 inmates all of which are required to work a job. Every month we calculate pay on the computer for the inmates and every month we print pay sheets.

Reduce paper usage by making two-sided printing the default

Our office and thousands of other offices in the Social Security Administration waste immense amounts of paper by printing on one side of sheets of paper instead of printing on two sides. Offices should make their printers default to printing on two sides and should train office personnel to only use one-sided printing when necessary to further the agency's goals.

However, the user may forget to toggle from ALL to SINGLE PAGE when printing. I suggest setting all gov't computers to single... more »

Go Green(er)

I work for the Social Security Administration. Every day I process claims through several systems and frequently the claims information is printed out, even when I don't need a printout. We waste hundreds of sheets of paper on a daily basis. For an agency that is supposed to be "paperless", I feel this is wrong. We should be given the option of whether to print or not to print on all of our systems. This would allow... more »

Save Paper

Mandate that if you have a double sided printer to utilize it. Right now we print off new forms every time we put a job on a unit and sometimes we use four peices of paper for a job that could take two. Then we will put one or two jobs on it and print them all over again. We use 6-10 peices of paper for each unit a year(240) when we could be using 4-6 or less if we were not printing new forms everytime we turn around.... more »
