Jared Serbu, DoD Reporter, Federal News Radio

The Pentagon's been warning for years that the decade-long budget caps Congress set in place four years ago won't work. At least if DoD hopes to execute the defense strategy on the books right now. With sequestration set to return this year, officials say they'll try to make things a bit less abstract…and publish a report that details exactly what would happen to individual bases and weapons systems with a 30 billion dollar cut. Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss DoD's sequestration messaging strategy as part of this week's edition of Inside the Reporter's Notebook.

What should DHS managers be doing to prepare for this possibility? John Palguta, the vice president for policy at the Partnership for Public Service, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to offer some answers.
