Natural Resources and Environment Issues, GAO
Climate change has made the Government Accountability Office's High Risk List. Because of the increase in frequency and severity of extreme weather events like Superstorm Sandy, GAO says the federal government will experience increased fiscal exposure.
media and public relations manager
Government Printing Office
The Government Printing Office's motto is "Keeping America Informed." GPO has found one more way to make good on that promise -- Pinterest. Gary Somerset is responsible for managing GPO's social media tools like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. He explains why GPO added the online pinboard to the mix.
Petrillo and Powell
For years, Alaska Native Corporations have enjoyed special status in federal contracting. They even get preference over other 8(a) firms such as women or minority owned. But that may be changing. In our Legal Loop, procurement attorney Joseph Petrillo of the law firm Petrillo and Powell of Washington joins us with more.
vice president for policy
Partnership for Public Service
Ever tried to fill a bucket with water that has a hole in the bottom? That's sort of what it has been like for the past 12 years, as agencies attempted to fill mission critical positions and close critical skills gaps. But the overall strategic management of federal employees continues to stay on the Government Accountability Office's High Risk List. John Palguta, vice president for policy at the Partnership for Public Service, answers the question: Will the government ever be successful at filling the hole, or should OPM, agencies and Congress just have to get used to the fact the hole is never going away?
It's been nearly three years since passage of the landmark Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Many provisions of the law remain murky or simply not operative. One reason is all of the rules the law assigned. Writing many of the new rules became the responsibility of the Securities and Exchange Commission. It still has a long way to go, despite a recent year-end deadline. Joining us with the prospects is Harvey Pitt, former SEC chairman and now CEO of Kalorama Partners.
