Federal bidding for office space

Currently when a division or office needs to obtain office space they will submit a bid to lease that space. Often other agencies, divisions or offices will also submit bids driving up the cost. When the Federal Government is involved in a bidding war this will drive up the cost of the ultimate "winner" costing much more tax payer dollars than is necessary.

Instead of this inefficient use of resources, a third party should be appointed to decide upon which Agency/division/office most needs the space and that organization should be the only one to submit a leasing bid to keep costs down.
