August 6, 2010 -- From the recent Washington Post series, Top Secret America, to the Obama Administration's efforts to define "inherently governmental," companies that work in the federal contracting arena have been in the spotlight.

This week on FedTalk, the president & CEO of the Homeland Security & Defense Business Council, Marc Pearl, joins host Debra Roth to talk contracting. The show will touch on who's doing the contracting, the history of contracting out, the current push to bring jobs back into the federal government, and the Council's reaction to the Post series.
