David Dye, Director, Federal Human Capital Services, Deloitte

That led to Congress enacting legislation cutting the civil service protection of SESers at the VA.

Federal News Radio's executive editor Jason Miller joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with details about the plans of some agencies to meet this 18-month-old policy.
