Jared Serbu, DoD Reporter, Federal News Radio

The idea of letting federal employees do government business on their personal mobile devices makes a lot of agencies nervous. The Defense Department, for years, has been one of the most nervous agencies of all. But that rigid rejection of BYOD might be loosening up just a bit. The Pentagon's planning its own test of BYOD a few months from now. Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu tells In Depth with Francis Rose about that test as part of this week's edition of Inside the Reporter's Notebook.

Brian Lepore, Director of Defense Capabilities and Management Issues, GAO

The last round of base realignments and closures (BRAC) back in 2005 did some good. Many of the bases were repurposed and used to help the homeless. But BRAC had problems, too. As outlined in a new report from the Government Accountability Office, DoD and Housing and Urban Development don't track progress on base conversions very well. It's a concern as the Defense Department raises the urgency of its request for a new round of closures. Brian Lepore, director of Defense Capabilities and Management Issues at the GAO, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with more on the problem.

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.
