I suggest that management be made to utilize employees in house and in their own component before venturing out and brining people in from other regions and across the country when they already have employees in the office that can do the work. They have employees even asking to be moved to another center, team, etcc in the same office to do different work and it is not allowed. Meanwhile managment will bring someone in from across the country costing unnecesary, travel perdiem, added up cost, housing, etc and when they get here, people in the office have to train them. They should seek details and transfers where they are and it would be a great savings to the government. These outside details cost the agency (SSA) a lot of money.
