All points, rewards, miles, free night's stays, etc. that are earned by government employees while on official business and earned through expenses either directly paid or reimbursed through the federal government should be channeled into a national clearinghouse account for use by other federal government employees when also on official business. In this way these benefits that are and should be viewed as property of the government (taxpayer) are used to reduce the operational costs of government. If necessary, each department could segregate these rewards into separate accounts to address the use of the rewards by the respective department whose budget earned them in the first place.
