Robert Levinson, Senior Defense Analyst, Bloomberg Government

Top Pentagon officials have been railing against the consequences of sequestration ever since the Budget Control Act was passed in 2011. And in their planning documents, they've also decided not to acknowledge the likelihood that the cuts are here to stay. For the last three years, officials have submitted budget requests that exceed the caps in current law, and they've indicated they plan to continue doing so in future years. Even if the Pentagon isn't building its military plans around sequestration, some outside analysts are taking a look at what various scenarios would look like under lower funding levels. One of them is Rob Levinson. He's a senior defense analyst for Bloomberg Government, and shared some financial predictions on In Depth with guest host Jared Serbu.

Asif Khan, Government Accountability Office

The latest check on the Defense Department's push to full audit readiness uncovers a domino effect of problems. The Government Accountability Office says DoD didn't follow a plan to improve how it tracks contract payments. Asif Khan is Director of Financial Management and Assurance Issues at the GAO. Khan told In Depth with Francis Rose that because the Pentagon missed some steps of the plan, it's dealing with even more problems that could keep the agency from meeting an important deadline.

The CFO Agenda: Delivering value from financial transparency and audit efforts in the public and private sector

Two dates are etched in minds of Defense Department officials--September 30, 2014 and 2017. Those are the two dates by which DoD and all of its services and agencies must first achieve audit readiness of the Statement of Budgetary Resources (SBR), and the second, 2017, is when they must achieve full audit readiness. DoD is mobilizing toward both of these goals in only the way it can--by bringing people, resources and focus to these efforts.
