Jared Serbu, DoD Reporter, Federal News Radio

For about eight years, Jimmy Sones was the top financial official at the Defense Information Systems Agency. He's still a member of the Senior Executive Service, but his only real job these days is co-chairing an obscure Pentagon study group on financial management software. 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.

Emily Kopp, Reporter, Federal News Radio

Federal jobs are not the easiest or the best-paid, but at least they're secure. Or so the thinking went. That long-held belief is less prevalent today than it once was, particularly among Senior Executive Service members. A 2014 law that gave Veterans Affairs Secretary Bob McDonald more leeway to fire SES members has taken a toll on members' morale government-wide. Many are questioning their career choices. That finding comes from a Senior Executives Association survey on the possibility of at-will employment. SEA President Carol Bonosaro discussed it with Federal News Radio's Emily Kopp.

Instead of remaking the SES, let's create something completely new

The key to SES reform is not about tweaking the SES or writing a set of guiding principles that no one will follow. Former DHS human capital exec Jeff Neal takes you inside his idea for an entirely new merit-based construct, neither career nor political, that is focused on a much smaller number of critical federal jobs.
