Suspend all relocation assistance/payments for federal vacancy announcements. The unemployment rate in every metropolitan area is excessively high. This translates to a human capital resource pool that has candidates to meet and probably exceed the requirements of the job. If someone in DC wants to relocate to San Diego during their last years of government service because they intend to retire there, let the move be on their own dime. It should not be at the expense of the tax payer.
