senior vice president
The Office of Personnel Management has told agencies get ready to change the way you think about HR. No longer are personnel decisions supposed to be something that human resources departments figure out. OPM is working with the White House on ways to work human-capital decisions into agencies' mission strategies. They say expect new regulations soon. For insight we turn to Jeff Neal, senior vice president at ICF International and former chief human capital officer of the Homeland Security Department.

Federation of American Scientists
Deep in a bunker at Minot Air Force Base, N.D., Air Force duty officers wait for orders that may never come. They guard, and launch on orders from the president, a portion of the nation's nuclear tipped Minuteman intercontinental ballistic missiles. Seventeen of the officers were pulled off duty after receiving barely passing grades on an inspection. Was it a case of bad attitude or was the nuclear mission in danger?
From Our Reporters
The Defense Department is responding to what it calls a "failure" by its new contractor for health care services in the Western U.S. Patients and providers have been waiting weeks to get pre-authorization for care by medical specialists, so DoD says for the time being, TRICARE beneficiaries can see those specialists with just their primary care physician's say-so. Rep. Doug Lamborn's (R-Colo.) district includes several military bases, including the Air Force Academy and Peterson Air Force Base. He says he started hearing from constituents almost as soon as the new TRICARE contractor took over. DoD Reporter Jared Serbu files this report.
The White House is ushering in a new normal when it comes managing the federal government's trove of data. The administration's new policy and executive order issued yesterday are the forcing functions that have been missing over the last decade. Federal News Radio's Executive Editor Jason Miller provides details of and reaction to the new executive order and policy on open data.
