Jason Miller, Executive Editor, Federal News Radio

Federal chief financial officers are fighting an epic battle over ceding budgetary turf to chief information officers. The Federal Information Technology Reform Act (FITARA) is now law. It gives CIOs control over agency IT budgets. The Office of Management and Budget is working with agencies to implement FITARA, and that's sparked the reaction from the CFOs. In his biweekly feature, "Inside the Reporter's Notebook," executive editor Jason Miller writes about this long-simmering turf battle. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain.

Dr. Wendy Dean, Tissue Injury and Regenerative Medicine Program Management Office, U.S. Army

You might remember Charla Nash. She's the woman who was horribly disfigured when attacked by a friend's pet chimpanzee back in 2009. The Pentagon has been closely watching her long recovery. More than watching, actually. The Army has paid hundreds of thousands of dollars of Nash's medical bills. The hope is Nash's ordeal can help the military learn to care for disfigured soldiers returning from war. Dr. Wendy Dean, a medical advisor in the Army's Tissue Injury and Regenerative Medicine Program Management Office, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with more on the effort and what the military hopes to learn.
