The budget the Defense Department is pushing for in 2016 will help the agency start to dig out of a big backlog of deferred maintenance on military bases. But Pentagon officials say even their own plan isn't a complete solution to deteriorating facilities, and if sequestration returns next year, things will likely get much worse. Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu has the details.

Lawmakers' latest FOIA reform effort would strengthen governmentwide ombudsman

This year's attempt to overhaul the the Freedom of Information Act would give the Office of Government Information Services the independence to report directly to Congress on FOIA issues. Without that, OGIS is 'neither an independent watchdog or overseer,' according to its just-retired director.

When Congress updated federal open government laws in 2007, it created a new ombudsman designed to serve as an honest broker between Freedom of Information Act requestors and federal agencies. But unlike most other ombudsmen, this one works for one of the parties in the disputes it's supposed to mediate. As Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu reports, new legislation would change that by making the Office of Government Information Services truly independent from the executive branch.

Administration's cyber sharing proposal a 'policy puzzle,' not a panacea

DHS officials tell Congress that while liability protections are key to encouraging companies to share cyber threat data with federal agencies, the department must also work to earn their trust. It must also work through a "policy puzzle" regarding roles and responsibilities surrounding information sharing.

In its latest legislative proposal on cybersecurity, the White House argues for liability protections for companies who agree to share cyber threat information with the government and with each other. But the Department of Homeland Security admits that solving those legal questions won't mean companies will automatically open their doors to the data the government wants. Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu has the details.

DHS: New cyber threat center is not strictly about cyber

The forthcoming Cyber Threat Intelligence Center would not only serve as a centralized hub for cyber intelligence, but also would fuse cyber information with other intelligence sources and serve as a central point for declassifying secret data about cyber threats.

The new Cyber Threat Intelligence Center will become the government's focal point for collecting and analyzing all it knows about current cyber threats. But the Homeland Security Department sees the CTIC as serving two more purposes: integrating cyber threat data with intelligence sources from the physical world and declassifying it so it can be shared outside the intelligence community. Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu has the story.

The Pentagon's been warning for years that the decade-long budget caps Congress set in place four years ago won't work. At least if DoD hopes to execute the defense strategy on the books right now. With sequestration set to return this year, officials say they'll try to make things a bit less abstract…and publish a report that details exactly what would happen to individual bases and weapons systems with a 30 billion dollar cut. Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss DoD's sequestration messaging strategy as part of this week's edition of Inside the Reporter's Notebook.
