Pat Niehaus, National President, Federal Managers Association

The two easiest ways for agencies recruit and retain federal employees are under attack from Congress. Pat Niehaus is national president of the Federal Managers Association and chief of labor and employee relations at Travis Air Force Base. On In Depth with Francis Rose, she said House proposals to cut salaries about nine percent for federal employees who make at least $100,000, and to switch retirement calculations from the High Three to High Five, are just two of multiple ways Congress is undermining your agency's workforce strategy.

Katie Maddocks, Federal Managers Association

Congressional leaders insist they can get an omnibus spending bill done to fund your agency for the rest of the fiscal year before the current continuing resolution runs out Dec. 11. But a cromnibus -- a combination omnibus and CR -- may be a lot more likely. That's the bad news. The good news is a bill like that might mean minimal impact on your pay and benefits. Katie Maddocks is governmental affairs representative for the Federal Managers Association. On In Depth with Francis Rose, she said a cromnibus, or even a plain old CR, isn't the worst that could happen.

Greg Stanford, Federal Managers Association

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen expects his agency to have more staffing issues next year unless it can receive some financial support from Congress. During this year's tax season, almost half the people who called the IRS couldn't reach a live person. Greg Stanford, director of government affairs at the Federal Managers Association, tells In Depth with Francis Rose why the agency's staffing problem is due to more than just a lack of money.
