Reimburse Transfer of Station (TOS) Costs and only to a limit!

When you tell a business you are moving, you get a certain price quote. However, if the government sets it up, the average cost to move a GS-12 is 140,000 dollars!!! Seriously? People who aren't feds move all of the time, and it can't possibly set them back 140,000 dollars each time. It's ridiculous. Let people move themselves, and then pay us back. We don't move purely for the benefit of the government, but also to improve our own lives. So we should set up our own moving details --with NO mention of a government move -- pay for the move, and then be reimbursed. There is no reason to waste this much money on moving people where they want to goo anyway!
