For a couple of decades, the Government Accountability Office has published its biennial list of high-risk federal programs. It makes good reading and a good guide to improving things. To go a bit deeper, Comptroller General Gene Dodaro joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin this week.

He also discussed a governmentwide problem and an agency specific one ? the 2020 Census ? as well as the state of federal human capital management and recruiting.

Federal News Network's Jared Serbu wrote about it in this week's edition of the DoD Reporter's Notebook. He joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin to explain.

He joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin for more discussion.
