It sounds like a fine idea. To get better traction it could be phased in over time. Next year move 1 or 2 small departments. Gather lessons learned. The following year move a few bigger ones. Increase the number over time.
Totally agree, postechild. Phasing it in is the best way to go. Somebody like Trump, I think, would like this and could get the ball rolling.
In today’s day of technology, this is absolutely doable. Our national debt would get paid off in a few years with the savings.
