What are President Barack Obama's plans for the Pentagon in a possible second term? And, what would a Mitt Romney administration hold in store? To answer those questions, Federal News Radio turned to Michele Flournoy, Obama's former undersecretary of defense for policy, and Dov Zakheim, former Pentagon comptroller and now a Romney adviser.
How would the Pentagon change under Mitt Romney? And what would President Obama do to the Defense Department in a second term? Federal Drives talks to advisers to the two candidates about the different approaches to national security.
When the Defense Department began contingency contracting operations on a large-scale in Iraq in 2003 it was largely a trial by fire. Despite the best planning, DoD lacked the programs and practical solutions to handle the environment, officials say. Since then, commissions, panels and lawmakers have offered fixes and DoD has evolved to try to create "rock-solid" reforms. Federal News Radio examines these issues in the next part of our series, Inside the World's Biggest Buyer.

Dov Zakheim, former Under Secretary of Defense, joined In Depth with Francis Rose to explain what this block will mean for defense budgeting and which programs might be affected.
Two senators are trying to change the way agencies plan for wartime contracting by introducing a bill that would incorporate ideas from the Commission on Wartime Contracting. Commission member Dov Zakheim weighs in on the bill.
Senior defense leaders told Congress they've already made huge steps toward implementing the recommendations of the Commission on Wartime Contracting. Former members of the panel say DoD still has a lot of work to do.
Experts differ on how the position should work
There is no precise figure for how many contractors are in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The "dysfunctional" relationship between the Defense Contract Management Agency and the Defense Contract Audit Agency described before the Commission on Wartime Contracting might be as entertaining as watching "Jon and Kate Plus 8" for some, but Commissioner Dov Zakheim tells FederalNewsRadio there's too much money, and too many lives, at stake.
