The Defense Department adds its own voice to a growing list of associations and members of Congress with ideas on how to improve the military's acquisition process.

In a letter to the leaders of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, IGs from large and small agencies say constraints placed upon auditors from EPA, DoJ and Peace Corps represent a serious challenge to the authority of every IG.
Frank Kendall, the undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, sent a letter to Sens.

The Defense Department adds its voice to a growing list of associations and lawmakers with ideas on how to improve the military's acquisition process. DoD's ideas center less on what Congress can do and more on what it shouldn't do. Federal News Radio's Executive Editor Jason Miller tells In Depth guest host Jared Serbu what DoD is looking to change.
Last week, the Government Accountability office released some of its conclusions about the problems surrounding the launch of HealthCare.gov, like cost overruns, schedule delays and an alleged lack of proper oversight over the project's prime contractor. It warned problems with the website could resurface later this year. GAO says the management weaknesses that caused the problems in the first place are still in place at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Roger Waldron, president of the Coalition for Government Procurement, joins In Depth with guest host Jared Serbu. He says the procurement side of the issue isn't the true villian in this ongoing I-T saga.
Newly hired federal employees don't have any sick leave during their first year on the job. Instead they accrue it over time and can start using it their second year. That creates a dilemma for wounded veterans who want to work for a federal agency, but can't miss a doctor's appointment. A newly-introduced piece of legislation aims to eliminate that dilemma. Katie Maddocks, government affairs representative of the Federal Managers Association, tells In Depth with guest host Jared Serbu why it's a staunch advocate of the Wounded Warriors Federal Leave Act.
Among advocates of telework within the federal government, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is often seen as the gold standard. But over a period of about four years, one group of PTO employees -- mostly teleworkers -- literally got paid for doing nothing. And it wasn't a secret. Managers within the Patent Trial and Appeal Board even devised a special pay code for time when employees were on the clock but weren't working: "Other Time." Those findings are part of a new report from the Commerce Department Inspector General's office. Todd Zinzer is the Commerce IG; on In Depth with guest host Jared Serbu, he explained how widespread this problem was.

Federal contractors are gearing up to fight a new executive order. President Barack Obama last week signed the directive to protect contractors' employees. The businesses, though, say it goes too far and infringes on their rights. Some are threatening to sue the government. Ben Goad, staff writer for The Hill Newspaper, joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss the battle.
One of the toughest jobs in the State Department these days might be ambassador to Russia. That job was conferred just days ago on veteran career diplomat John Tefft. He arrives in Moscow when tensions between Russia and the United States are as high as they've been since the Cold War. Bob Silverman is president of the American Foreign Service Association. He joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss how Tefft will have to go about his job.
