I'm also trying to support intergovernmental harmony by putting tracker numbers from both departments into one tracker, so when we call #DEPARTMENT we quote #DEPARTMENT's tracking number so they can find what we want.

Heed my warning, America. Washington does what Washington gets in trouble for not doing. If you want X, raise your expectations to include X. Make trouble for not getting X, then you'll get it. SECRET: We want you to make trouble.

If you don't like it, fill out a job application or run for office. That's what we did.
