Senior Fellow for Defense Budget Studies
Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments
There's no shortage of think tanks in Washington. One of their favorite topics is the Defense Department — what it should do, and how much it should spend on what.
The Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments gave itself and three fellow think tanks a single assignment: Come up with a 10-year DoD spending plan within the limits as they exist now. Senior Fellow Todd Harrison discussed where they agreed and disagreed.

Now they are finishing data collection for the largest mental health study ever attempted by the military. The project's acronym is STARRS.

Federal News Radio
Immigration and Customs Enforcement says it's making a "course correction" on a system it calls its highest information technology priority. Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu reports, ICE calls a do-over after six years and $64 million.
