Have you ever thought about the freedom of information act. Here at my agency we charge a fee to process freedom of information acts. It doesn’t seem fair but I understand the reason to prevent frivolous requests that would bog down the system. What do you guys thing? Is fair and reasonable to charge a fee for FOIA’s?
Usajobs! Is your best bet! Unless, you know the supervisor and SES for that specific office who have authority to laterally transfer you in that specific office where you would like to work. You will also need to know the 2 budget/payroll officers and CFOs too.
You need to ask both the new office and old office in writing if anyone would be…[Read more]

It seems it would only make sense if AGA want to be 508 compliant.
Hey, I have a smart idea why don’t we all measure AGA’s preformance on how timely they get their book to audio which would give much more access…[Read more]
