Julia Ziegler, Web Manager, Federal News Radio

Nobody likes inflation. But when inflation is low, the cost of living adjustments (COLAs) for federal retirees are small, too. At this near mid-point in the fiscal year, it looks like COLAs are going to be pretty skimpy once again. Lots of people are sounding off about it at Federal News Radio.com. Web manager Julia Ziegler joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with some of your comments.

Vince Crisler, Partner, Fortalice Solutions

Over the past year, it seems like every bad cybersecurity scenario that could happen has happened. What might be scarier is the threat you can't see the backdoor embedded in something you buy. A router or switch, for example. Federal agencies and their contractors are under a mandate to ensure cybersecurity not only for the products they buy, but also for the chain of suppliers involved in the manufacturing of finished systems. How do you do that? Vince Crisler, a partner at Fortalice Solutions, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain.

Deloitte director Bill Beyer, co-author of their new report, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to review the findings.
