[greenyes] Paperless Offices


The US Government is striving to reduce the use of
paper. Yes, the Federal Government. The Office of
Management and Budge (OMB) has set a goal of 1
November 2005 for all grants to be publicized
electronically instead of in the paperbased Federal
Register.

A couple of weeks ago, the US Department of Housing
and Urban Development (HUD) issued their Notice of
Fund Availability (NOFA) through www.grants.gov.

Someone in the office printed out the entire document,
and it was a stack of paper 4" tall (printed single
sided).

The applications have to be submitted electronically.
A typical application in a program I work in is
typically a stack of paper 1" thick.

The edit of making all this work electronic will save
alot of paper.
