Consolidate Regional offices

There are many, many regional offices across the country. Why not follow the recent lead of the Census and start moving to a 21st century model that relies much more on telecom (which is more cost efficient for taxpayers and convenient for consumers) rather than brick and mortar. Let's make as many regional offices "virtual" as we can -- and where we need a physical presence let's merge various agency regional offices and benefit from shared overhead costs - even shared support staff.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
