Federal Drive with Tom Temin

The Food and Drug Administration wants to inject some fresh talent into its workforce. To tell the public about it, it's launching a good old-fashioned hiring campaign with a specific message. The agency launched a new pilot designed to shorten the hiring process earlier this year. FDA also has some brand new authorities to offer more competitive salaries for certain positions. Melanie Keller, acting associate commissioner for scientific and clinical recruitment at FDA, spoke with Federal News Radio's Nicole Ogrysko about why FDA thinks this campaign message will resonate with potential applicants.

Drug interdiction and spectacular rescues using gleaming white ships get the Coast Guard a lot of admiring attention. But much of its day-to-day activities are not seen much despite their sizable effect on maritime safety.

Both for his own work and how he fosters the work of others, Geoffrey Scibek, a marine inspector in the safety unit at Huntington, West Virginia, received this year's honor. He joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin to discuss.

They're coming, like it or not. Some 700,000 drones, maybe a million will be humming along in the skies in a few years. How to make sure they operate in a safe manner is the concern of Parimal Kopardekar, senior technologist for Air Transportation Systems at NASA's Ames Research Center. He's been leading the effort at the agency to engineer a whole new air traffic management approach, and he is a finalist in this year's Service to America Medals Program.
