Please task to DT-S fora 14 December 1990 reply to me. 2. DT-S: As a followup to our brief discussion on 22 November, please under- take the following and advise me of your results by i4 December: - An immediate survey must be made of our DT-S physical facilities to determine whether any health and safety hazards exist. If so, bring them to my attention for immediate action. - DT-S' interior facilities for our personnel must be of the same standards as for a71 other DT and DIA employees. Provide a list of equipment that needs repair, renovation, or replacement. This includes the analysts' work spaces as well as the general physical appearance of the interiors of both buildings, to include painting or other actions needed to meet our accepted standards. - Work with the post engineer to have the exterior of our buildings painted and renovated as needed. Our first objective here is to have the post engineer assume the costs under its operations/maintenance budget, but, if you hit a stonewall, we will regroup on another course of action. - Also, explore with the post engineer the availability of other facilities on the post that we could move into and vacate our existing two buildings. Our objective would be to obtain better facilities and work environment for our employees. Let me know of the availability of such additional facilities, timelines, any projected costs, or downside implications (such as loss of privacy or security for our projects). Depending on the results of your survey, we may identify DIA maintenance personnel to assist in an expeditious improvement of the working conditions. However, we need a specific list of actions to be corrected in order to scope out our options and decide on the coursesaf action. As usual, canvass all of DT-S personnel for their views on these matters and provide me a candid assessment.
