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. With almost no activity on that circular over the past year, could OFPP be taking a less permanent way to further this approach to buying. 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.

For a department with detailed policy for just about everything, the Defense Department sometimes fails to back up its policies with oversight. That's what the Government Accountability Office found when looking into how well DoD officials manage nearly three dozen major information systems. Carol Harris, director of information technology acquisition management issues at the GAO, joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin for more.

The recent quadrennial workforce priorities report from the Office of Personnel Management detailed both challenges and strategies for building the right federal workforce. As a department made of many disparate components and missions, Homeland Security has a tough and never-ending personnel challenge. DHS has no trouble attracting job applications and in some ways it has too many. But Chief Human Capital Officer Angela Bailey is working to change where and how the agency recruits, and what happens after applications come in. She joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin in studio to discuss DHS and its personnel, how the agency is dealing with the President's Management Agenda, and recent executive orders on personnel and labor relations.

Customs and Border Protection has been making the national news a lot lately, but the CBP commissioner's top priority for the agency is not making headlines. The agency's top priority is hiring, and it has been hiring new border patrol agents and officers. But it's losing them faster than it can hire replacements. The agency said it is now looking to industry for help in solving this problem. Federal News Radio's Nicole Ogrysko had more on Federal Drive with Tom Temin.

Military installations often get the short straw when it comes to funding. But a new study from the Defense Department shows just how vulnerable military buildings are to cyber attacks. And that means they will need more money. Federal News Radio's Scott Maucione reported for Federal Drive with Tom Temin.

No matter what agencies do, the government seems to remain stubbornly populated by "mature" workers. Just 6 percent of the the full-time career workforce is under 30 years of age. Regardless of age, agencies struggle with people finding them, hiring them, and retaining them. Margot Conrad, director of education and outreach at the Partnership for Public Service, joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin with some of the latest thinking about strategy.

The Senate is wrapping up work on its version of the 2019 Defense Authorization Bill. And in at least a couple of cases, lawmakers are directing their attention to what they consider to be unfinished business from past years' NDAAs. Senators think the Defense Department has been ignoring the spirit if not the letter of the law. So they're circling back with more specific directives. Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu writes about it in this week's edition of the DoD reporter's notebook on Federal Drive with Tom Temin.

The White House's latest attempt to give agency chief information officers a bigger seat at the table is filled with many of the same wants, desires and hopes that previous efforts have had over the last 22 years. So is President Donald Trump's executive order from May 15 really going to make progress where the Clinger-Cohen Act, FITARA and many other policies have struggled? Can the EO breathe life into stagnant CIO authorities like the administration claims? In his weekly feature, the Reporter's Notebook, Executive Editor Jason Miller asked six former federal IT executives with more than 50 years of experience these questions. He joins me now to discuss what they said.

Space exploration ranks among the most important scientific endeavors and among the most exciting. But it's also the most expensive. A single probe can cost $1 billion and sometimes it takes hundreds of people to track and maintain it. But NASA's New Horizon mission that got really close to Pluto also shows how to avoid billions in potential costs. NASA planetary scientist Alan Stern, who works for the Southwest Research Institute, shares the details on Federal Drive with Tom Temin.

Today marks the signing of the nation's 10 millionth patent. It represents an enormous history of innovation and scientific development.

He fills in all the details on Federal Drive with Tom Temin.
