Quit printing and mailing handbook updates

Our agency's 100+ handbooks are available on our website. However, we also keep printed copies of each in each of our 2400 field offices. These handbooks are updated daily. Updates are printed and mailed to each office! On a national basis this practice COSTS taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars each year - paper, copiers, postage, envelopes, etc. The handbooks on the web are updated daily and thus are more current/accurate than the printed copies that we receive sometimes as much as two weeks later! There is NO NEED to continue to print and mail copies to 2400 offices!

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
