All Regional and Area Office Site Visits should be conducted by teleconferencing.


The time spent travelling, in additional to the mileage and hotels required, cost the Federal Government millions of dollars yearly.


Videoteleconferencing is a very effective method of communication and is commonly used in the private sector.


The advances in automation now allow ROs and Area Offices to see the same listings and documents as the field offices see.


Millions of dollars annually will be saved by video teleconferencing.

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