Too many employees involved in Cargo targeting

Why do we need Strategic Trade Centers in different parts of the country, each staffed by many employees. Import Specialists, properly trained and chosen can do this, and already do targeting as part of their job (and they go up to Sr. grade 12, not 13 as the International Trade Specialists do). You want statistics, hire a statistician! Officers do targeting! Personnel in the National Targeting Center to targeting. The STC's are superfluous. You can eliminate high grade employees and still have good targeting by the worker-bees in the field.

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