Jenny Yang, Chairwoman, EEOC

About 12 percent of federal employees say they have disabilities. The hiring of more has become a focal point of the Obama administration. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission just wrapped up a month of focusing on this issue, during which it published guidance for agencies, hosted a Twitter town hall and launched a new data collection effort. New EEOC Chairwoman Jenny Yang told Federal News Radio's Emily Kopp the agency is trying to help the government be a model employer of people with disabilities, while it does a better job itself.

Bill Evanina, Office of the Director of National Intelligence

The federal government is supposed to thoroughly check on security clearance holders every few years. But there are about five million people who hold clearances. Knowing the system is inadequate to catch people who might steal state secrets or turn violent, the government is moving towards a system in which it continuously evaluates clearance holders. One method is by looking up the person on the Internet. Bill Evanina is the national counterintelligence executive. He tells Emily Kopp how his office is experimenting with using social media to vet clearance holders.

Jared Serbu, DoD Reporter, Federal News Radio

The Defense Department published its first-ever joint doctrine for military operations in cyberspace a year and a half ago. But the document was kept secret. Now, the Pentagon has released a declassified version. Much of it repeats what DoD officials have said in public, but there are some eyebrow-raisers. Federal News Radio's DoD Reporter Jared Serbu writes about it in this week's Inside the Reporter's Notebook. He joined Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive with details.
