June 28, 2013 -- This week on "Fed Access", Linda Rix, co-CEO of Avue Technologies, joins host Derrick Dortch to discuss the the state of the federal recruitment process, and other issues affecting federal hiring.

Rix will also talk about her recent appearance before a House subcommittee where she shared her concerns about the Office of Personnel Management's two billion dollar revolving fund.

OPM uses the fund to, among other things, conduct background investigations for federal agencies, and run USAJobs.gov.

Rix discusses whether OPM should offer HR services and whether those services represent a conflict of interest for the agency.

Later in the show, Rix talks about how the NSA leak scandal will change federal recruiting, and she gives us an update on a new website her agency is working on that will help returning veterans find jobs, and fill out forms for benefits.
