Jeff Neal, John Salamone and Ron Sanders

The Office of Personnel Management reports March was the fifth month in a row they got fewer retirement claims than they expected to. The retirement wave that federal agencies and outside observers predicted, starting in the late 1990s, has never happened. In fact, the federal workforce gets older every year. That's the focus of our special report "The Reverse Retirement Wave: Planning for a Workforce that's Aging in Place." Three Federal human capital experts joined In Depth with Francis Rose to talk about the results of the survey: Jeff Neal of ICF International, and former Chief Human Capital Officer at the Department of Homeland Security; John Salamone of FMP Consulting, and former Executive Director of the Chief Human Capital Officers Council at the Office of Personnel Management; and Ron Sanders of Booz Allen, and former CHCO at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

An exclusive Federal News Radio survey reveals that something else may be going on. In part 1 of our special report, The Reverse Retirement Wave, we explore why federal employees are opting to stay on the job longer even though they are eligible to retire.

Jared Serbu, DoD Reporter, Federal News Radio

For about eight years, Jimmy Sones was the top financial official at the Defense Information Systems Agency.

A pair of senators think there's reason to believe his reassignment was in retaliation for blowing the whistle on financial irregularities at DISA. Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu tells In Depth with Francis Rose about it as part of this week's Inside the Reporter's Notebook.
