Deputy Inspector General for Investigations
Health and Human Services
It's getting tougher to commit health care fraud against the government. An analysis by Syracuse University shows prosecutions rose to 377, a new high, in fiscal 2013. The Justice Department credits a SWAT-team-like approach to nabbing fraudsters. Gary Cantrell is deputy inspector general for investigations at Health and Human Services. His office launches many of the investigations.
The Hill Newspaper
It's that time again. The President gives his State of the Union message to Congress, as prescribed by the Constitution. Back in 1790, George Washington took just six minutes to deliver his speech. President Obama will probably take an hour tonight. So what's in it for you? Bob Cusack is managing editor of the Hill Newspaper, and he breaks it down.
Defense Imagery Management Operations Center
The Defense Department is spending $5 million to digitize and archive priceless historic images. But officials are facing two problems. 1) A massive backlog and 2) the possibility of the material deteriorating before it reaches the National Archives. Mike Edrington has more details on the effort. He is director of the Defense Imagery Management Operations Center.
Director of Strategy and Insight
It looks as if the world of federal contracting is starting to settle back down following a year of sequestration and government shutdowns. But budgets are flat. The market is more competitive than ever. The federal market research firm ORI has canvassed contractors and learned a few things. John Kagia is director of Strategy and Insight at ORI.
Federal News Radio
Political leaders long have told the military to make its bases more energy independent. Well, the Defense Department listens. A new report by the Pew Charitable Trusts finds DoD is mostly using private capital to boost energy security. Phyllis Cuttino leads Pew's clean energy program. She speaks with Federal News Radio's DoD reporter, Jared Serbu.
