I think not. The TSP is one of the best and lowest cost retirement plans that exist. For this you are considering transfering to an institution that charges 2% annually? Remember that they would have to improve your returns by 2% just to break even. If you in fact want to transfer someplace I suggest you consider rolling it over to an IRA with a low cost, no load, fund family such as Vanguard or Fidelity.
Whether your current investment asset allocations are proper is another matter. I would suggest you read some books and articles on the subject of asset allocation. As a starter you might look at http://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Thrift_Savings_Plan
One of the L funds might be a good possibility, but, is difficult to suggest without knowing more about you and your situation.
