Federal Drive with Tom Temin

It's been a year since the Office of Federal Procurement Policy released and accepted comments on its draft circular concerning category management.

In his weekly feature, the Reporter's Notebook, Executive Editor Jason Miller's got an exclusive look at a new draft memo focused on demand management and best-in-class contracts. He shares the details on Federal Drive with Tom Temin.

Even with all the focus and concern over the partial government shutdown, we can't lose sight on the potential and real impact technology will continue to have on agencies in 2019. From the Office of Management and Budget's continued push to move agencies to the cloud as part of the IT modernization focus to the never-ending battle to secure federal networks and data, 2019 is shaping up to be another year of change for federal IT. In his weekly feature, the Reporter's Notebook, Federal News Network Executive Editor Jason Miller asked six federal IT experts for their take on what to expect in 2019. He joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin for more details.

Congress remains at an impasse over much of the federal budget. In a few weeks it will have to agree whether to raise the debt ceiling threatening the next showdown. Yet at least in the House the new Congress has shown some bipartisanship in the way it governs itself. That might bode well for the future. The Firewall editor in chief David Hawkings joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin for more.

Securing federal facilities seems to be a never-ending challenge. What used to be a guard at a desk has morphed almost into an industry called physical access control systems. The General Services Administration approves the technologies and the vendors and the White House sets the parameters. They both need to do more work. Lori Rectanus, director of physical infrastructure issues at the Government Accountability Office, joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin for more.

Shutdowns may seem like a fact of life, but that wasn't always the case, and according to the Government Accountability Office, it doesn't have to be. Before 1980, government shutdowns didn't exist. A GAO report from March 1981 explains the decision that created them, the fallout from that decision, and a number of measures Congress could take to ensure they never happen again. Federal News Network's David Thornton has been digging into this and he joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin to discuss.

The IRS plans to begin this year's tax filing season on time, as if to say, what shutdown? That means it'll start sending out tax refund checks on Jan. 28. But Democratic lawmakers and agency employees have raised concerns about the logistics of getting everything done on time. Federal News Network's Jory Heckman joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin for more.

The long partial government shutdown has had little effect on the flying public. The Transportation Security Administration has received a lot of attention, especially as reports come of large numbers of officers calling in sick. But what about those in the air transport chain the public doesn't see? The air traffic controllers of the Federal Aviation Administration have also been on the job, and also working without pay. Executive Vice President of the National Air Traffic Controllers Association Trish Gilbert joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin to talk about it.

Having reached historic length the great partial shutdown of 2019 has no end in sight. Still, a Democratic senator was able to get a promise from President Donald Trump to sign a bill guaranteeing federal employees would get paid once appropriations are restored. Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin in studio to discuss what's next.
