Jesse Holler, Quantitative Analyst, Bloomberg Government

When the Obama administration released its 2016 budget request last month, it left some areas sort of blank. Case in point: The IT spending details for the Navy and Army, two of the biggest technology spenders in the government. Bloomberg Government analysts raided the IT dashboard this month to find some of the missing data. Bloomberg quantitative analyst Jesse Holler joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with a clearer picture of Army and Navy IT plans.

As one of the military's highest-ranking women and its first openly gay general, Brig. Gen. Tammy Smith, has a busy speaking calendar, especially around this time of year. It's women's history month. Smith is the deputy chief of staff of the Army Reserve, which prides itself on having women in 95 percent of its occupations. Federal News Radio Reporter Emily Kopp asked Smith whether she thought the Army Reserve was more welcoming to women than other parts of the military.

Dr. Wendy Dean, Tissue Injury and Regenerative Medicine Program Management Office, U.S. Army

You might remember Charla Nash. She's the woman who was horribly disfigured when attacked by a friend's pet chimpanzee back in 2009. The Pentagon has been closely watching her long recovery. More than watching, actually. The Army has paid hundreds of thousands of dollars of Nash's medical bills. The hope is Nash's ordeal can help the military learn to care for disfigured soldiers returning from war. Dr. Wendy Dean, a medical advisor in the Army's Tissue Injury and Regenerative Medicine Program Management Office, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with more on the effort and what the military hopes to learn.

The Army says it's in the midst of a significant reduction in its spending for service contractors -- including a $2 billion cut to logistics support contracts that officials expect to double in the coming years. As Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu reports, most of the work they're performing will be handed over to soldiers and Army civilians.

Inside the DoD Reporter's Notebook: Tighter budgets lead to more cost overruns; Army wraps up listening tour ahead of force structure decisions

In this week's Inside the DoD Reporter's Notebook, could a new report finally explain which Pentagon policies tend to lead to cost and schedule growth, and which ones keep programs on track? Plus, why it seems unlikely that Congress will go along with DoD's latest request to close stateside military bases.
