Is it too much to ask for databases to update each other? Lets start with TSP. How about TSP and EBIS talk to each. They can be friends go out to lunch, take walks in the park. Just have friendly chats. There are thousands of gov't computer systems that should exhange information, but don't. Like examples of mailing social security checks to people in prison, or social security thinking you have died. Thinking about if for 2 minutes, this really begs for a cohesive national policy for gov't systems.
There needs to be a standard developed, old computers that don't meet the standard go on e-bay, and new efficiency cost effective systems go online.
