EPA Spends $92 Million on Office Furniture
Jason Stapleton –  Sep 25, 2015

*** begin quote ***

If you’re thinking, “That must be some nice furniture!” you’re absolutely right. The EPA ended up spending an average of $6,000 per employee buying some of the most expensive furniture in America.

More shocking was the assertion that the inventory of Government Services Administration (GSA) leases shows that there is a 10% occupancy rate.

The podcast states that the GSA has an inventory of 8,000 buildings. With a 10% rate, that means that they only need 800?

Argh!

Any place I ever worked that occupancy rate was between 80 and 120%. 

With teleworking, even less space is needed.

Argh!

The Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. And this is an example of it.
