The White House, again, is calling for Congress to lower the cap on government-reimbursed contractor pay. This time it's suggesting $400,000, the same salary as the president himself. Without changes, the government would pay contractor executives more than double that amount, up to $950,000.

Federal employees, like their counterparts in the private sector, are clamoring for the latest mobile devices. And the White House has issued a mobile government strategy. It's aimed at letting more people work anywhere and any time using smart phones and tablets. Getting these devices into the hands of thousands of users is one thing. Managing them all so they are secure and working properly, that's another thing altogether. GSA has opened a new set of contracts to help with mobile device management.

Hispanic employees make up 8 percent of the federal workforce and 5 percent of career executives.

Patrick McFarland made his case to House lawmakers yesterday. He wants to take a small chunk of that revolving fund to pay for increased oversight. Federal News Radio's Executive Editor Jason Miller provides details.
