On In Depth with Francis Rose, he explained how well agencies are adapting to a mandate to improve their records on contract performance.

Katherine Hammack, Assistant Secretary of the Army for Installations

Shrinking force size and changing force structure are two reasons the Defense Department continues to push for another round of base realignment and closure. The Army will likely shrink the most of any of the services, and they are already returning 21 locations to their home countries in Europe. But most members of Congress still oppose another BRAC round in the States. Katherine Hammack is Assistant Secretary of the Army for Installations, Energy, and Environment. On In Depth with Francis Rose, she said the Pentagon is making some progress.

Jared Serbu, DoD Reporter, Federal News Radio

The Army's uniformed cyber workforce right now is made up of a "potpourri" of occupational specialties.

The Army hasn't reached a final decision yet, but Army Secretary John McHugh is considering the creation of a new career field that would be completely dedicated to cyber. Col. Carmine Cicalese is the branch chief for cyber and information operations at Army headquarters. He talked with Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu about the potential benefits of a cyber career field.
