Carter opens door to more DoD civilian job cuts

Ashton Carter, the new Defense secretary, told lawmakers this week that most of DoD's civilian workforce is performing mission-critical functions. But large budgets over the past decade have let the department do a lot of hiring without much thought toward cutting outdated positions, he said.

Hearings on the nomination of Ashton Carter to be the next Defense Secretary will get underway next month. They'll be much more than a discussion of Carter's qualifications. The 2016 budget proposal will also be out then, so the hearings will likely cover wider ground. So will it be smooth sailing for President Barack Obama's nominee, or a bumpy road? Defense analyst Nora Bensahel, a distinguished scholar-in-residence at American University, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to offer some insight.

Todd Harrison, Fellow for Defense Budget Studies, CSBA

Ashton Carter has chosen his support team for the confirmation process to become Secretary of Defense. Defense One reports three people will work with Carter: former Defense Business Board Chairman Michael Bayer; former adviser to Adm. Mike Mullen and Gen. Jim Mattis, Sally Donnelly; and 20-year Navy veteran Dave Copp. Todd Harrison is a fellow for defense budget studies at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments. In his Top 3 for 2015, he tells In Depth with Francis Rose why the report from the Defense Department's Compensation Commission is probably one of the first things the new Defense secretary will deal with.

Steve Grundman, Fellow, Atlantic Council

The Senate might confirm Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel's replacement in less than a month. At the moment, chances look good for former deputy defense secretary Ash Carter to take the helm at the Pentagon. Steve Grundman is George Lund fellow for emerging defense challenges for the Atlantic Council's Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security. He's also former deputy defense undersecretary for industrial affairs and installations. On In Depth with Francis Rose, Steve tells Federal News Radio's Sean McCalley Congress has an opportunity to appoint a leader who wants change.
