New SharePoint site makes budget cuts easier

This post was originally published by Moody Air Force Base - Moody News

January 24, 2013 in Georgia, Moody Air Force Base by clevine

Team Moody recently created a new SharePoint site to advertise excess equipment items and potentially save Moody thousands of dollars that can be used to pay for training opportunities and other mission related spending requirements.

The 23d Logistics Readiness Squadron Repurposing SharePoint site is a single location for anyone to post items they no longer need so other organizations can pick them up for their own use.

"The idea is that the site functions as a sort of "Craigslist" website where units can post items for the taking," said U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Joseph Rodriguez, 23d LRS commander. "If units see an item they need, they would simply call the point of contact on the posting and arrange a time to receive it."
