Jamie Price — Director of the Reports and Evaluation Division, EEOC
For a fifth straight year, equal employment opportunity complaints based on reprisal and age discrimination are up in federal agencies. At the same time though, agencies, on average, are making progress toward investigating and closing out those EEO claims in a timely fashion, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's latest report.
Jamie Price, the director of the reports and evaluation division in EEOC's Office of Federal Operations, told In Depth the commission is glad to see the decrease in processing delays.

Tom Shoop — Editor-in-Chief, Government Executive
The American public, as a whole, is not on a crusade against government spending. In fact, it wants more — at least according to a survey by the National Treasury Employees Union.
That positive outlook could be a sign the public is comfortable with not just big government but and even bigger government, Tom Shoop, the editor in chief at Government Executive, says.

Tim Grance, a senior computer scientist at NIST, discusses the updated guidance.

Tom Devine — Legal Director, Government Accountability Project
One federal watchdog group says a court decision handed down last week could have broad implications for the employment protections feds are entitled to under the federal merit system.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit invalidated a decision by the Merit Systems Protection Board, finding the agency didn't have jurisdiction over employment decisions made regarding employees in so-called "critical non-sensitive" positions. National security procedures take over instead.
Tom Devine, the legal director for the Government Accountability Project, says his organization is unhappy with the ruling because it could allow agencies to exempt any employee from the due process afforded by the merit system.
