Navy says the Defense Production Act and a new partnership with USDA will help it generate several hundred million gallons per year of U.S.-based biofuel. The solicitations it plans to issue over the next year are a key stepping stone to the Navy's goal of getting half its energy from alternative sources by 2020.
"Inside the DoD's Reporter's Notebook" is biweekly feature focused on news about the Defense Department and defense community as gathered by Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu.
In spite of a lot of unhappiness among vendors, the Defense Department shows no signs of backing down from a controversial decision it made last month: requiring its contracting officers to do their own pricing homework before they make a purchase from GSA's schedules program. Federal News Radio's DoD reporter is writing about that as one item in this week's edition of Inside the Reporter's Notebook.

After two years of planning, the intelligence community is ready to start deploying the set of common IT services that make up the Intelligence Community Information Technology Enterprise (ICITE).
The Intelligence Community is building a system of shared IT services for all 17 of the nation's intelligence agencies. The Pentagon is doing the same for the military services. Federal News Radio's DoD reporter, Jared Serbu has this report on DoD's plan to tie those two efforts together.
The Defense Department and the intelligence community are both in the process of collapsing their IT stovepipes into common sets of IT services. While the governing bodies that oversee these two parallel efforts do communicate with one another, they have different operating models and objectives. Now, leaders are looking to see how they can connect the Venn diagrams and save money, time and effort in the process.
The Air Force is making a new push to lower the prices of its acquisition programs by asking contractors to scrub their supply chains for unnecessary costs. Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu reports the service thinks it's made some progress, but that it's still paying more than it should.
In a budget environment in which cost overruns are very likely to lead to canceled programs, the Air Force says it's pressing it prime vendors to remove any costs they possibly can from their subcontracted supplier base.
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper says it's time to start deploying the project known as ICITE, a common IT environment for the entire intelligence community. More details from Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu.

In the years that followed the 9/11 terrorist attacks, federal agencies made it a priority to create an integrated intelligence community. But one of the IC's top leaders says it's time to move to a new model, from "Integrated Intelligence" to "Immersive Intelligence." Letitia Long, director of the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, previewed some of the agency's priorities in a conversation with Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu. Long will offer more details about NGA's plans at the annual GEOINT conference in Tampa next week.
