Make duty tour 3 years at a Post and not 2 years to save cost.

Extend duty tour to 3 years at a Post so that American Employees at Post will move twice in 6 years and not 3 times in 6 years. Duty tour should be 3 years mandatory. Reason is that total amount of money involved in transferring an employee and eligible dependants from post to post is too much and could be saved while achieving the same goal. A lot of taxpayers dollars is wasted in moving shipments from post to post every 2 years, in renovating houses to make ready for arriving employees and in changing and replacing furniture and appliances.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. NO
