These are the stories Federal News Radio reporters are working on today.

  • The government is fighting back against the bigger is better motto. And they've taken that fight to your cubicle. Federal News Radio's Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says feds should get used to shrinking personal office space.

  • Agencies must reduce the number of management support service contracts by 15 percent over the next year. This is the White House's latest mandate in the governmentwide effort to reduce contract spending. Federal News Radio's Jason Miller joins us with details on how agencies are expected to meet this goal.
