Expedite the use of a “Skype” like tool for USAID – In my previous job, I used this tool to use on-line chat and call for free to 40 projects sites worldwide including subs, to discuss issues, trainings, provide updates, mentor and quickly share info even to the most remote sites. Not only is it free (no telephone bills), it reduced the number of TDYs and improved performance and multi-tasking. This will be very useful as we focus more on procurement reform and local capacity. Unfortunately, the current video conferencing takes a lot of effort to do.
