Senior Defense Analyst
Congress has been reluctant to let Defense Department finance officials shift tight dollars from one place to another. Limited reprogramming means procurement accounts get hit harder than program managers would like. One result is that defense contractors are starting to look elsewhere for business. Some of the top contractors say increasing their sales abroad is becoming an attractive business strategy. Kevin Brancato is a senior defense analyst at Bloomberg Government.
Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board
The Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board was created in 2009 to track spending under the economic stimulus bill. It got a news assignment to oversee the $58 billion the federal government spent to help victims of Superstorm Sandy. That task has proven to be not so simple, in part because of a missing code to tag the money. Kathy Tighe is chairman of the RAT Board.
