SharePoint Saves!!!

All governmental organizations either currently have or are in the process of activating a SharePoint online Virtual Work Environment (VWE). More impetus needs to be placed on activation and utilization of these environments in an effort to truly 'do more with less' as well as creating a capability to implement their mandated telework capabilities and paper work reduction mandates. This one system will allow every organization... more »

30% of Federal Employees Telework

The President has encouraged teleworking for federal employees. However, this great idea has not but incouraged or put into practice in the workforce. My idea is to have 30% of the federal workforce work from home.
1. It would save millions in gas (foreign oil) consumption.
2. It would boost the economy as families would have more money to spend.
3. It would greatly lower emissions and help the environment.
4. It... more »

TELEWORK!!!!!!

We have been advised that Telework is both supported and encouraged by the Sec. of DOD and CMDR. in Chief. However, the loophole states that the final decision is left up to supervisors etc. There are other agencies(DLA) doing the exact same work and permitted to Telework, where as we NAVSUPWSS are not,, simply because the supervisors just don't like the idea. I live over an hour away from work and have asked for Telework,,... more »

Save billions by using military instead of contractors

The Government pays contractors billions of dollars to do installation projects that could be accomplaished by assets that are already in place! I work in the Telecommunications field and have deployed twice to Iraq and Afghanistan to install communications on bases there. I also went to Iraq for 1 year as a contractor. I made more money in the one year as a contractor (over 170k) than I did the other 2 combined! And... more »

Mandatory telework

Employees in DoD live between 10 to 50 miles away from their place of employment. If telework is made mandatory for employees working unclassified work then it would not only save on government spending with office buildings, computer connections, business phones and office supplies, but it would cut down on the foot print that many of us are causing due to the gas in our vehicles. So we will be going green as well... more »

Alternate Work Schedule & Telework Mandate

With roughly two million federal civilian employees, of which 15% (~300,000+) work in the Washington DC Metro area, demand put on the daily infrastructure (I-66, I-95, etc) is substantial. Currently, most personnel would work a normal 40 hour work week (5 days x 8 hours). If an AWS (Alternate Work Schedule) was put in place, where each employee would work eight, 9 hour days and one, 8 hour day per pay period, this would... more »

Integrated IT Applications & Info-Sharing Between Agencies

I work for a Navy command that uses XP, but I am forward deployed to an Army base which uses Vista. The systems will not interact with each other and prohibit the use of VPN, information sharing, and telework. There are work around solutions, but the easiest, most efficienct solution would be for DoD to all get on the same page and pick one to save money, share information, and provide solutions towards greater efficiency.... more »

Distributed Offices (Telework)

The federal government should take a proactive and strategic approach to managing office space, employees, and telework/telecommuting. By establishing stronger policies and performance metrics (such as percent of employees involved in and/or the percent of organizational work done via telework) to encourage and manage telework, the federal government could reduce the required amount of office space. Thereby reducing... more »

Enforce Telework for Safety and Financial reasons

All work must be measured no matter where an employee works. There is so much waste with socializing in the government workforce sometimes I have to leave the noise and go to the cafeteria to answer my taskers. Teleworkers should not be held to a different standard than people who cost the government and the taxpayer money by consuming high rent buildings in the Wash DC area. You could save billions by closing most... more »
