Often better qualified employees are passed over because quite frankly there is allot of nepotism within the Government. I recommend having quality control measure placed to ensure the best qualified employee is selected and not someone's family member.
This idea would reward employees at all levels who come up with an idea that would save the money.
My suggestion is that the employee would receive a monetary reward of 10% up to $1000 for their idea if it is implemented.
The employee would have to come up with idea... more »

Representatives from each agency can teleconference nationwide to share best automation practices, share initiatives to encourage online participation from the American public, and discuss other ideas to become more efficient.

Currently, most agencies have their agency title, physical mail address, and phone number. It should be a "no brainer" to also list the web site address along with the other contact information, directly under the agency phone number.
By doing this, the American public will be able to immediately access the... more »
Rather than waiting until the last minute to ship something, federal agencies should be mandated to ship immediately upon notification of the need for shipment.

If Federal Agencies would be proactive and timely in planning for travel, the expenditures would decrease tremendously.
Often times, solicitations for travel are issued a month in advance. The employee is then alerted a month later, for example, on a Thursday that they travel out on Sunday. The airfare and hotel... more »
In my office, a huge stack of paper pay stubs come in every 2 weeks. With the availability of the myPay web site, we should not still be distributing paper pay stubs.
The myPay web site also maintains the W-2s. There is no use in mailing out these forms each year, with the printing and shipping costs.
The Federal Government would save millions of dollars if paper pay stubs and w-2s were discontinued.
Why not adopt MANY of these suggestions? Many of these are legitimate money-saving suggestions for the Federal Government.
I suggest adopting as many of these as possible to give the American Taxpayers the Federal Government that they expect and deserve.
USAJOBS.GOV should be revamped.
Job applicants should not only receive the confirmation that the resume/application were sent, applicants should also be provided feedback from the HR reviewer.
The HR communication would prevent the necessity of follow-ups and simplify the Federal Government job application process, saving the Federal Government millions of dollars.

The Federal Government should not hire employees just because they meet a quota.
I've seen too many employees hired to meet a targeted category, who were totally unable to do the job. Some were eventually terminated, some still working.
By getting the best qualified candidates, we would cut out the waste in money used to train, and give the American Taxpayers the Federal Government that they expect and deserve.
The time spent travelling, in additional to the mileage and hotels required, cost the Federal Government millions of dollars yearly.
Videoteleconferencing is a very effective method of communication and is commonly used in the private sector.
