Report 2011-002-AEP - Management Advisory on the Potential for Real Estate Cost Savings Through Telework

Fiscal Year
Executive Summary

Effective cost management is a highly desirable and achievable business (operational) goal.
With the EEOC facing major budget challenges, and in light of President Barack Obama’s goal
of saving $3 billion in federal government real estate costs by the year 2012, we believe
infrastructure (real estate) cost savings, and the more efficient use of Agency real estate,
represent compelling opportunities for the EEOC to achieve improved, more effective, cost
management. Based on the Office of Inspector General’s (OIG) previous studies and recent
discussions with EEOC leaders, we believe the EEOC is in an ideal position to use [frequent]
telework1 to achieve major infrastructure cost savings.
