Additionally, an amount of $18.000 is requested to perform specific repairs to the exterior pointing and caulking on the House Underground Garages.

In recent years the Architect's Office has responded to recently amended civil rights logislation by Sponsoring training such as prevention of sexual harassment, employee rights and responsibilities, substance abuse, and other subjects. This training is required for all current and new employees. Additionally, the Office requires supervisory development training and sponsors basic educational skills training for reading. Programs to respond to agency training needs such as trade apprenticeships and additional supervisory development, are being prepared.
The limited funding available for training is directed almost entirely toward the required training, leaving few resources available for other organizational training needs. Cost increases have also reduced training opportunities. As a result, the office will have to reduce the availability of basic educational skills training and eliminate trade apprenticeship training being developed. Without an increase in this allotment there will be no monies available for work performance improvement training. technical skills training training necessary for implementing or maintaining new programs or technologies.
Because of the unique and high profile environnent within which the Office operates, employees must possess a combination of technical and communications skills in order to be effective and productive in supporting the activities of the Congress. Employees must have sufficient technical skills to operate and maintain the equipment the office is responsible for, and they must have sufficient communications skills to perform their work within the Congressional community in an expedient and appropriate manner.
