And Round in Circles We Gaily Go
This post on the USDA blog praises a Forest Service employee who is a finalist in the competition for the best suggestion to save money. Based on a fast skim (still trying to catch up from my travels) and fading memory, it seems to me ASCS used to use the proposed method. We even had bank accounts in local banks. That system is long gone, both the accounts and the methods of processing collections. So maybe the proposal is in effect a return to the past for a USDA agency.
