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

  • The General Services Administration is beginning to step into a new role in government - as a facilitator and consultant. GSA long has offered other agencies acquisition services where they would provide soup to nuts on any given procurement. But GSA administrator Martha Johnson says agencies want a new type of service from her agency. Federal News Radio's Jason Miller has details from the Interagency Resources Management Conference at Gallaudet University in Washington.

  • DoD officials were on Capitol Hill today defending their proposed increases to TRICARE premiums. Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu has a full report coming up.
