Patrick Lester — Director of Federal Fiscal Policy, OMB Watch
While Congress will ultimately determine if sequestration happens, the Office of Management and Budget can delay some of the pain from the steep cuts — at least for a little while.
That's the conclusion from a recent report by OMB Watch, an independent watchdog group.
Patrick Lester, director of federal fiscal policy at OMB Watch, joins In Depth to discuss how OMB can use "apportionment" authority to blunt the immediate impact of the cuts.
Tom Shoop — Editor-in-chief, GovExec
Two candidates... two plans... one Oval Office. Even if tomorrow is just another Wednesday, the future of the federal government is now.
Tom Shoop, editor-in-chief of GovExec, joins In Depth to discuss the election's impact on federal employees and how President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney differ in management styles.

Brian Friel — Reporter, Bloomberg Government
If you're a contractor that wants to offer services with the federal cleanup for Hurricane Sandy, it might already be too late to get any business, according to analysis by Brian Friel, a Bloomberg Government reporter.
Friel joins In Depth to discuss the types of contracts the government looks for before, during and after a natural disaster and how far in advance contractors need to set up emergency services to do business with the government.
