Why must agencies use expensive contactors for things like office supplies and travel arrangements? For example, it is back to school time. I can save our agency thousands of dollars by buying office supplies in bulk this time of year. Why can't the government be smart consumers and bargain shop like the rest of americans? Why do we have to pay full price while others can buy things on sale? Why must I pay twice as much for an airline ticket when there are discount airlines to choose from?
