John Mahoney, Federal Employment Attorney

If you're the target of discrimination and harassment, or the perpetrator of it, it rarely ends well. But sometimes it can lead to tragedy. In one case, a female Defense employee tried to commit suicide, claiming she was the object of discrimination and harassment. In another case, an accused supervisor succeeded in taking his own life while being investigated on sexual harassment charges. Federal employment attorney John Mahoney joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with some advice for navigating these difficult situations.

Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas)

December 2013 was a major milestone on DoD's path to audit-ready financial statements. The Marine Corps became the first military service in history to get a clean opinion on a major part of its general fund. But new information has come to light since then, and on Monday, the DoD inspector general rescinded its favorable audit opinion - saying it's no longer reliable. Congressman Mike Conaway (R-Texas) is a member of the House Armed Service Committee and is focused intently on DoD audit readiness over the last several years. He spoke with Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu about the latest developments and what they mean for DoD's broader audit goals.

Jason Miller, Executive Editor, Federal News Radio

Tony Scott has learned at least one thing in his nearly two months as the federal chief information officer: Starting initiatives means little unless you can get them to the finish line. Scott, a pilot, makes the analogy to flying a plane. Taking off might be the fun part, but you've got to land at some point. Federal News Radio's executive editor Jason Miller covered Scott's first speech as federal CIO. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with details on how Scott plans to pilot federal IT over the next two years.
