Chris MacDonald — Project engineer, Naval Sea Systems
The Navy recognized the best of its acquisition workforce in a ceremony last month. One of the winners: the team behind the new Ocean Class research vessel. A contract for the first of the new ships was awarded last fall and the second, just a few months ago.
Chris MacDonald leads the Ocean Class Auxiliary General Oceanographic Research Team at the Naval Sea Systems Command, which the Navy recognized with its Small Buisness Team Award at its Acquisition Excellence ceremony.
Rep. Sandy Adams (R-Fla.)
A Florida lawmaker claims she's uncovered another agency spending scandal involving an out-of-town conference. Meanwhile, the agency involved says it's much ado about nothing.
Rep. Sandy Adams (R-Fla.) says she has evidence that the National Institute of Standards and Technology spent between $3 and $5 million dollars on a conference for its Manufacturing Extension Partnership program this year. The agency says the figure's much, much lower.
Adams tells In Depth the information she's asking fellow lawmakers to investigate came to her office via a whistleblower complaint.
Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Calif)
Earlier this week, the acting administrator of the General Services Administration, Dan Tangherlini, announced he was freezing bonuses for members of the agency's Senior Executive Service and freezing all new hiring.
In the aftermath of the scandal over the agency's Western Regions Conference, some members of Congress say the move is long overdue.
Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Calif.), the chairman of the House subcommittee that oversees GSA's Public Buildings Service, called Tangherlini's announcements "a step in the right direction."
