Your agency needs to clarify what it expects from employees who telework. That's according to the Patent Office Professional Association. Their president says the recent telework controversy at the Patent and Trademark Office exposes problems with how agencies manage employees working outside the office. Bob Tobias is director of Key Executive Leadership Programs at American University. He explained what he sees behind the controversy on In Depth with Francis Rose.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel says DoD's fleet of A-10 jet fighters can't survive long term budget cuts. But Congress says it doesn't want to write them out of next year's defense budget, so the Pentagon needs to find a different way to pay for the fleet. On In Depth with Francis Rose, Lt. Col. Dan Ward of Hanscom Air Force Base shared a way to save the A-10 using some simple math.
The 10-year anniversary of Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 is next week. Agencies have spent the last 10 years pursuing ways to verify the identities of their employees. The Department of Health and Human Services is one of them, and the Inspector General's office at HHS has new research on how the agency is doing. Tom Salmon is assistant inspector general in the Office of Audit Services at the Department of Health and Human Services. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he said this work may be new -- but the HHS IG has been reporting on HSPD-12 for a long time.
The Navy puts its wounded sailors back to work before they're even discharged from the hospital. The Wounded Warrior Intern Program takes wounded sailors interested in science and engineering careers and puts them to work at Naval Sea Systems Command. Dr. Tom Murphy is the program manager. He explained how the program works on In Depth with Francis Rose.
When Congress comes back to work after Labor Day, it will have to figure out how to fund the government to start off fiscal year 2015. Most people think it will be a continuing resolution. But they may wind up needing more than the 12 days they have scheduled now. Jessica Klement is legislative director of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association. On In Depth with Francis Rose, she said getting a budget in place will take up a lot of Congress's time -- and may stretch that time to the limit.
The telework controversy at the Patent and Trademark Office might not even be a telework problem to begin with. Poor management and misinformation might have caused it. That's according to Robert Budens, president of the Patent Office Professional Association. He explained his take on the issue on In Depth with Francis Rose.
One of a federal agency's acquistion strategies might disappear. A rewrite of the Federal Acquisition Regulation sets new requirements for blanket purchase agreements. The goal is to promote competition for new contracts. Roger Waldron is president of the Coalition for Government Procurement. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he said the rewrite will have some unintended consequences for federal agencies.
The General Services Administration wants to make it easier for agencies to buy professional, management, technology and a host of other kinds of services from the schedule contracts. To that end, GSA will consolidate seven different professional services contracts into what could end up being one mega-schedule.
