Allow government employees to make their own travel arrangements. I recently travel from Sioux Falls,SD to LA for PHIS training. The ticket purchase by the government travel agency cost the government approximately $1200.00. I could have purchased the same ticket on the same plane and the same time for approximately $325.00. Anytime FSIS employees are required to travel by air they are required to use the government travel agency costly 2 to 3 more than a normal ticket would cost. This would save the Government thousands of dollars.
