With so many pricey outside consultants scrutinizing our processes and policies, government employees have to adapt to new changes, procedures and policies. A new procedure or policy in one area of the government may be helpful elsewhere. We need to share best practices among departments, offices and Centers.
Set up a WIKI for Federal and Local Government employees where they can share best practices and solutions for problems. Would allow rapid sharing of ideas too improve efficiency.
As the Telework program expands, the government is not reducing the number of square feet it needs for office space. Teleworkers are teleworking an average of 2 to 3 days a week which leaves a large percentage of office space unoccupied and air conditioned, heated, and lighted. Infrastructure should be reduced; no more building should occur and work cubicles could be shared by employees on alternating days.
