Yea .... I retired at the right time ...

I am going to anonomize this as I don't want everyone to tease this COS. Those who have been in the rodeo awhile will be able to narrow down who this is .... but .... Shipmate has to be thinking to himself, "I am a senior Captain in the world's largest navy. I have a respectful record of service at peace and war. I am the Chief of Staff at a significant command with oversight of thousands ... nay ... tens of thousands if you count in right ... and ... sigh ... sequestration can bite me."

From: [redacted] CAPT [redacted] , N01
Sent: Wednesday, January 30, 2013 17:30
To:[redacted] _ALL_[redacted]
Subject: STAFF BUDGET REDUCTION

Staff,

I am sure that you all have been hearing quite a bit about
sequestration recently.  With that, we have been directed to reduce
our admin costs and limit our travel to Mission Essential only.  Below
is a summary of what we are currently doing, and what I am expecting
from every employee.

Reduce Printing:

- Be mindful of what you are printing.  Where possible, review the
document/data electronically. PowerPoint presentations should also be
reviewed electronically and only be printed when finalized.

- If you print, ensure that for documents/emails that you are printing
on both sides of the page, front and back.  For PowerPoint
presentations, you should print two slides to a page on both the front
and back page.

- If you attending a brief that will be presented on a large screen,
printing of the brief should be limited to only those that are
briefing.

- Effective immediately, if [redacted] is going to be briefed with a
PowerPoint brief that is greater than four (4) slides, the Flag
Conference room should be reserved to brief [redacted] utilizing the
large screens.  Only one copy of the brief should be printed, which
will be used by the briefer for notes.  N6 and the Flag Secretary will
coordinate the logistics of the brief.

Government Vehicles:

- I have directed a 50% reduction in the number of vehicles that we
are leasing.  To support this effort, we will be developing a pool of
vehicles that will support all of our codes.  The process for this
will be provided in the near future.

Blackberries, Cell Phones, and Air Cards:

- We are currently reviewing individual requirements for communication
needs, and we will possibly reduce staff blackberries, cell phones,
and air cards.

Mission Essential Travel:

-  We must reduce travel immediately to Mission Essential only. Travel
is authorized for requirements that would negatively impact [redacted] ’s
mission, if not executed. All travel should be discussed with COS via
your ACOS/SA prior to entering the Authorization Request into DTS.

Admin Supplies:

-  Funding for admin supplies has been reduced.  Admin supplies that
will be provided will be limited to basic requirements; we will not be
providing any specialty type of items.

Information about sequestration is coming out regularly, and I will
provide you all with an update when appropriate.  Thank you all for
your hard work and dedication in supporting our ships, units, and
sailors.  Together we will get through this.

Regards,
COS
