Deputy Chief Financial Officer
The Defense Department believes it's on the right track to reach auditability in 2017. One of the key elements of that is getting its pay system functioning well. DoD's DIMHRS system was supposed to do that, but the Pentagon canceled it after it spent billions of dollars on the system and had nothing to show for it. Former Defense Department Comptrollers say the complexity of the DoD pay system, especially for uniformed personnel, is one of the biggest challenges to a streamlined and modernized process. Host Francis Rose talked to Mark Easton, deputy chief financial officer at DoD, at the Pentagon this morning for today's edition of Pentagon Solutions. He explained exactly why the DoD pay system is so complex and what DoD is up against that private sector organizations and even other agencies don't have to deal with.
The departure of Frank Wolf in the House of Representatives may also be the end of the bipartisan coalition of legislators from the D.C. area who stood up for Federal employees. Unless a Republican replaces Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.), all the members that represent D.C. and the Maryland and Virginia areas around D.C. will be Democrats. Host Francis Rose asked Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) whether all-Democratic voices in a Republican House could impact federal employees.
