As many meetings as we conduct in the federal government, we need to use technology to attend these meetings rather than incurring airfare, lodging and per diem costs. In additon, the cost of travel to the DOJ's training facility, the NAC, is outrageous. We need to do more in-house training in the DOJ or move that facility out of South Carolina! Most US Attorney's Offices have to take two flights to get to Columbia, SC - very costly. There is an alternative which involves flying into Charlotte, NC and taking a shuttle bus to the NAC - this is less costly than the second flight.
