Big changes in store for the Pentagon's acquisition workforce. Shay Assad, the acting deputy undersecretary for defense for acquisition & technology says the federal civilian DoD workforce in acquisitions is expected to rise by 20 thousand, while contracting staff will fall by half that amount. Pentagon contracts have nearly tripled over the last 8 years, but the size of the workforce overseeing those contracts has been flat.

F-22 R.I.P.

The Senate voted to terminate further production of the Air Force's topline F-22 fighter jets Tuesday, giving President Barack Obama a major spending victory and siding with the Pentagon's desire for smaller jets better suited to 21st century wars. F-22 supporters complained the action would be a blow to long-term national defense - and cost thousands of jobs in the middle of the recession.

Moran wins reprieve for DoD agencies; no BRAC move until 2014 at earliest

A Northern Virginia lawmaker is successful in making the case to the Pentagon for a delay to give more than three dozen DoD agencies in Arlington County and the City of Alexandria two more years to make their move to new secure facilities under the BRAC process. Rep. Jim Moran (D.-Va.) says new buildings and infrastructure at Fort Belvoir simply aren't ready, and in the meantime, wants to ease the financial pressures on DoD landlords until the moves can happen.
