When the government fills job vacancies, everyone who applies, regardless of their geographic proximity to the duty station is given equal consideration. If extra points were given to those who would not require a PCS relocation (and the expenses that are associated with it) then millions could be saved each and every year by allowing those who already live close by to fill vacancies. This would also be a great way for the federal government to show people that they care about and support local communites by hiring local people first with regards to federal jobsin their areas.
