Debra Draper, Director of Health Care Issues, GAO

The Defense Department has an extra layer of healthcare coverage it doesn't need. DoD's Family Health Plan offers premium health benefits for employees that can't access a TRICARE facility. But the Government Accountability Office says most of the people enrolled in the Family Health Plan have access to a TRICARE facility. Debra Draper is Director of Health Care Issues at GAO. On In Depth with Francis Rose, she explained where the FHP comes from, and why the Pentagon doesn't need it anymore.

Jay Healey, Director of Cyber Statecraft Initiative, Atlantic Council

Back in 2012, then-defense secretary Leon Panetta warned of a catastrophic cyber attack that could cripple an entire nation or its military. He called it a cyber Pearl Harbor. It was emblematic of a lot of the conventional wisdom that's built up around cyber warfare over the past decade or so. In a recent op-ed, Jay Healey challenges some of that conventional wisdom. Healy is director of Cyber Statecraft Initiative at the Atlantic Council. On In Depth with guest host Jared Serbu, he argued not only is deterrence possible in cyberspace, it's been a reality for a couple decades now.

In a semiannual report to Congress last week, officials said they had notified DoD labor unions that the new system will evaluate employee performance in three tiers and promised that those performance reviews will be linked to organizational goals. Bob Tobias is Director of Key Executive Leadership Programs at American University. He explained the system changes on In Depth with guest host Jared Serbu.

Roger Waldron, President, Coalition for Government Procurement

Last week, the Government Accountability office released some of its conclusions about the problems surrounding the launch of HealthCare.gov, like cost overruns, schedule delays and an alleged lack of proper oversight over the project's prime contractor.

GAO says the management weaknesses that caused the problems in the first place are still in place at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Roger Waldron, president of the Coalition for Government Procurement, joins In Depth with guest host Jared Serbu. He says the procurement side of the issue isn't the true villian in this ongoing I-T saga.
