Interior Department employees wasted 104,000 hours on on porn, gambling type sites.

10-05) 04:00 PDT Washington -- The Interior Department's inspector general has uncovered an impressive amount of time spent by department employees surfing porn, game, gambling and shopping Web sites.

"Our review of one week of computer use logs revealed over 4,732 log entries relating to sexually explicit and gambling Web sites" by department computers," said Earl Devaney's report, titled "Excessive Indulgences."

"More alarming," said the report, made public Wednesday, "was our finding regarding access to online game and auction Web sites: We discovered over 1 million log entries where 7,763 department computer users spent over 2,004 hours accessing game and auction sites during that same week." In a year, "these veritable shopping and gaming binges could account for 104,221 hours of lost productivity," equaling the amount of yearly work time put in by 50 employees.

But it's likely worse, the report continued. "We believe that our estimates of inappropriate use activity are conservative, particularly the amount of time spent at pornographic and/or sexually explicit Web sites."

And auction and shopping "binges" are nothing in August, when Devaney did his review, compared with what they'd be during the Christmas shopping season.

This Internet use costs taxpayers more than $2 million in lost wages, the report said. (Officials were not sure how the 80,000-employee department compared with other agencies.)

Department filters "provide some level of protection" but don't fully block the prohibited sites," the report said. In a "spot check" in August, "we were able to access sexually explicit photographs at several agencies in the department," including the National Park Service and other agencies that don't even have blocking software.

Devaney urged the department to plug the gaps in enforcement and better blocking software. He also said a better job needs to be done to ensure that violators are "held accountable for their actions."

Despite the findings, Devaney noted that since 1999, the department has taken just 177 disciplinary actions, 112 of which were for accessing pornographic or sexually explicit Web sites.

"Without strong and effective controls, we believe that this activity will continue and possibly increase," Devaney wrote.

In response to the report, department officials issued a memo to all employees on Sept. 27 reminding them that some of the activities Devaney found "have significant legal and administrative consequences" and that violators could be fired or turned over to the police.

The department is working on blocking inappropriate Internet sites, the memo said. But it reminded employees that "just because an inappropriate site is not blocked does not mean that it is authorized for access."

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

The problem with this is that it assumes that these workers would have actually been doing something productive had they not been on these sites, which I find unlikely.

The problem isn't the watsted time, it's the fact the gub'ment hires people stupid enough to do this $3it at work when they KNOW they're being watched and tracked.

50 man-years oout of 7763 employees amounts to 15 minutes per week per employee, on auction and game sites.

Pron and gambling sites were less than a half-a-percent of that or 5 seconds per week per employee. Anyone ever accidently hit a NSFW site from work? Any one ever check the point spead at work?

So while the Gov is taking away American's rights-their worthless employees are whacking off on the clock-priceless.

Maybe if Bin Laden has an auction on Ebay-the dumbasses could track him down.

Govt employees are employees just like you and me.
Just people with a job, who get board and check Ebay for a pocket knife.

Over that many employees, its not as attocious as it sounds. I'll wager that private sector segments of the same size would be just as guilty and have comparable numbers.

I'd never cruise pRon or gamble at work....thats stooopid.

Where I work, we have a strict internet policy. It's for work only. Our IT manager monitors our useage daily and reports anything wrong to my manager. Our dept. policy is we're allowed to use the interent for personal use at lunchtime only. If the rules are not followed, you will be fired. The government should be no different.
