Locate Fed Gov Offices in DC to a Set of Locations in Va MD

Save costs on real estate and leasing fees by moving Federal offices now located in DC to a limited number of satellite government centers in the states surrounding DC. There is no reason to concentrate offices in DC. Work functions, communication needs, work products, etc. DO NOT necessitate a physical DC address. Commuting times would be decreased, quality of life would be increased, and many, many other benefits... more »

Increase Number of SAVE Program Participants Meeting President

Currently only one mysteriously selected winner in the SAVE program gets to meet the President. Recommend that this be changed so that the Top 5 or perhaps the Top 10 winners would meet the President. This could help increase participation in the SAVE program and lead to more money saving suggestions from someone who would not have participated.

Eliminate Paper Payroll Stubs

Currently federal agencies mandate electronic payroll deposits. On the flip side, many still send out paper payroll subs.

 

I would like to see a federal mandate to make all payroll stubs electronic. This would save postage and paper costs while simultanelously expediting these notices to all federal employees.

Presidential Spending

Reduce the usage of AirForce one and similar vessels in times of economical trouble. The President should not be taking unnecessary trips or vacations while most American's are looking for work. His misuse of our tax dollars are outrageous. If he needs Airforce one it should be on stand by but it should not be used as a taxi cab to accomodae his personal pleasure, especially when most American can not afford gas. Mr.... more »

Establish a "Dollar a Day" Initiative, save $500,000,000 / year

Introduce a Dollar a Day program that encourages federal employees to find away to save just one extra dollar a day. By looking at the small things we can often better see the big ones. Each employee would be asked to save $260 per year some how within their normal operations. Require annual submission of total savings efforts by federal facility and recognize those who perform best.

The truth is that if each of the... more »

Save Program Needs Fundamental Restructuring

While the concept was good, the implementation has been pretty poor. First, there is no structure to the suggestions - it is just a free for all. Suggestions should be grouped and where possible similar or like suggestions consolidated (I don't know how many I have seen on reducing travel costs and saving paper, but they are are duplicative). Next there shoulds be a specific estimate of savings if implemented (based... more »

Enforce the Telework Mandate

By enforcing (really enforcing) telework for non-essential, eligible, and related personnel, the Government will save tremendously on the abundance of unused space, parking, transportation, electricity, fuel consumption, security, etc. We desperately need to ENFORCE this mandate which has the potential to cut costs significantly. Too many "old school" government personnel are inhibiting our advancement for a desire... more »

Gut Administration, and Management.

Every organization in the government, spends way too much money on administration, and management, and we all know it. Gut the middle layers. Fire some people. The most important place to do this, unfortunately is the school system, which the federal Government has little control over. We need more competent laborers, there are a plethora of unemployed people, and instead of giving those people jobs we're wasting... more »
