Repeatedly our Missions have requested relief from unnecessary, ad hoc requests for information that can be found in Washington, are relatively less important to their core mandates, or fail to recognize priority issues for the Missions and Agency. Repeatedly, senior management agrees that something should be done, but to date no serious follow-up has resulted from these discussions.
