Medicare Prescription reform

I would like to see the prescription plan move away from commercial pharmacies to the mail order only program with set pricing. It would require two prescriptions 1) for 14 days to be filled locally and 2)to be faxed/sent to mail order company. The volume would allow for a larger price break and the consumer would have a set fee paid at the time of order. We must protect the elderly and disabled from unplanned expenses... more »

Deploy SoftWare Automation and Technology (SWAT) Teams

Right now most of our business processes are manual and paper based resulting in literally thousands of person-hours being wasted on error prone data entry and paper shuffling. We spend millions of dollars procuring and maintaining, old, antiquated, and overly complex systems that can be replaced with new, cheaper, and easier to use web based systems.

Technology exists on every Government computer with functionalities, features, capabilities, and tools that are not being utilized and therefore the return on investments in Technology is low.

Electronic Immunization Records for Travelers and School Kids

Let's go green again and reduce the paper waste and increase revenue and get ourselves out of debt!

Streamline DRMO

DRMO, used to reutilize and/or dispose of government property, is too bogged down. People do not use the program as much as they should because it is a hassle (paperwork, appointment making, no local access). It should be streamlined/replaced/or supplemented with local programs. Each base should have their own warehouse/storage area (does not have to be air conditioned/heated, lighted only when necessary) that any... more »

Federal projects database

With so many federal agencies working on overlapping projects it is exceptionally difficult to get a complete picture of all of the work going on in a given area. A simple database which all federal offices or employees are asked to populate with a list of ongoing projects, contact information, and related keywords quarterly would be very helpful for determining what work is ongoing in a given area This will be useful... more »

Allow Electronic Submissions of Notices to the Federal Register

As an employee who regularly submits notices to the Federal Register, there would be enormous time, material and cost savings if the process were brought into the 21st century. Currently, several identical signed copies of Federal Register notices must be hand delivered, along with a CD of the word file, to the Government Printing Office (GPO). Our Department, in Washington DC, has an individual drive to the GPO every... more »
