Cameron Leuthy, Senior Budget Analyst, Bloomberg Government

The Homeland Security Department's approach to purchasing has never been great. Acquisition management programs have been on the Government Accountability Office's high risk list for years. But a bill that passed the House this week takes aim at the management of these faulty acquisition programs. Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) says the bill forces DHS to improve its management. Cameron Leuthy, senior budget analyst for Bloomberg Government, joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss the bill's intended effects.

Robert Levinson is a senior defense analyst with Bloomberg Government. He joined Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to take a closer look at VA spending.

Rob Levinson, senior defense analyst for Bloomberg Government, explained the "secret spending" to Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp.

Bloomberg Government Senior Analyst Afzal Bari told Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp more details on the 2015 outlook.
