Yes, but...

One thing that's been shown repeatedly when moving government departments out to the sticks.

While it may indeed save money, everyone who's not utterly shit and can thus easily get another job convenient to where they are, tells 'em to shove their relocation where the sun shineth. The invariable result is a much cheaper department now staffed solely by time-serving losers, many of whom are then promoted using the Peter Principle to fill the gaps in the organisation.

They then proceed to backfill using local hire and find out the hard way why the office space was so cheap...
