On In Depth with Francis Rose, he explains what you can learn from HHS.

Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the next steps.

Contractors are casting a wary eye on President Barack Obama's Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces executive order. It seems innocuous because most contractors already comply with labor laws. Still, the EO could cause a lot of mischief. Trey Hodgkins, senior vice president of the Public Sector at the Information Technology Industry Council, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss how the EO affects contractors.
Big changes are coming to one corner of the General Services Administration in January.

The backlog of retirement claims is shrinking at the Office of Personnel Management. That's partly due to OPM receiving1,000 fewer claims in September than expected. Still, about 6,000 federal employees chose a day last month as their best day to retire. But September might not be the best month for everyone. Federal News Radio Senior Correspondent Mike Causey tells Sean McCalley on In Depth with Francis Rose what's really the best day to retire.
A large majority of millenial employees appreciate their jobs in the federal government. Eighty-six percent of employees born in the 1980s said their work is important in the latest Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey. Tom Shoop is Editor in Chief at Government Executive magazine. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he said that's good news -- the bad news is millenials are far more likely than older employees to leave the federal government because of a lack of leadership opportunities.
Federal agencies are forgetting to save their work to help with future acquisition projects. The Government Accountability Office looks at 28 different contracts to see if market research is helping them make better procurement decisions. Tim Dinapoli is director of acquisition and sourcing management issues at the GAO. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he said the agencies do the market research, but aren't saving it to use in future projects.

The Ebola outbreak has forced the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention into overdrive. About 100 staff members are in West Africa. Hundreds of other employees are working at the agency's emergency operations center in Atlanta. Still more are working stateside to protect Americans from Ebola or just picking up extra work so their colleagues can focus on the disease. Ted Pestorius is a management officer for the CDC's National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, where his focus is on the center's employees. Emily Kopp caught up with him at NIH this week, at a conference where he was speaking about ways supervisors can support their employees. She asked Pestorius how is the CDC supporting these employees, and what concerns he hears the most about their well-being?
