I create travel authorities for all emplyees at this VHA. I suggest 2 things - 1. Any business locaiton within a reasonable driving period (up to 8 hours) shiould be mandated to travel via POV/GOV - not flying. This would save a tremendous amount of money in govt airfare spending. 2. Stop asking us to use Fed Traveler to book hotel rooms. The fees we would save by letting travelers call or book through online websites would be seen immediately and save thousands at this VHA alone.
