Gene Zapfel — group vice president, Unisys
Analysts say federal contracting dollars could fall as much as 12 percent over the next couple of years. While that's a fairly rosy outlook, it doesn't take into account those across-the-board cuts that could come if Congress fails to repeal a new law. Contractors like Unisys are adjusting their strategies. Group Vice President Gene Zapfel specializes in defense contracts. He spoke with Tom Temin at the industry's Exchange 2012 Conference in Charlotte, N.C.
Lt. Gen. Jack Stultz — chief of the Army Reserve
Lt. Gen. Jack Stultz says the Army reserves was considered the force of last resort when he became chief six years ago. During his tenure, the government poured unlimited resources into getting these citizen-soldiers ready for battle. Now Stultz is retiring and he leaves the Reserves the best trained, best equipped and most ready force it's ever been.
Jim Shelton — assistant deputy secretary for innovation and improvement, Education Department
The White House is telling agencies to ground their dreams in reality. Money is tight. The Office of Management and Budget said it was more likely to fund programs that show they are working through evidence and evaluation. In that regard, OMB said the Education Department could be a model for the rest of government.
John Gage — national president, American Federation of Government Employees
National President John Gage is stepping down after 37 years at the American Federation of Government Employees. But he has a lot of work to do before he can clear his desk, including negotiating the first contract with the Transportation Security Administration.
