In-House Legal Services Charges

Require agencies and cost-reimbursement contractors to charge offices or departments for the in-house legal services that they receive. This could be performed by establishing an in-house hourly billing rate commensurate with full cost recovery. This would reduce the usage of in-house legal departments and justify reducing their staff or out-sourcing their functions, and ensure that services were received only when necessary.
