In part four of Federal News Radio's special report, Fixing the SES, current and former members of the service discuss what the key ingredients would be in a new SES recipe.

That's according to a new report from the Government Accountability Office. Federal News Radio's Emily Kopp joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with more details from the report.

Emily Kopp, Reporter, Federal News Radio

If asked, many people with knowledge of the federal government would agree that problems surround the Senior Executive Service. But if you ask what the problem is, you'll get very different answers. For example, of the 890 career senior executives who left government in fiscal 2014, just two were fired for discipline or performance. Is that because the laws make it hard to fire executives even when they do something scandalous? Or is it because leaders don't want to use the authorities at their disposal? On the Federal Drive with Tom Temin, and as part of her special report, "Fixing the SES," Federal News Radio's Emily Kopp dissected the problems with help from Eddie Ribas. He's an SES member and human-resources expert who has worked at many agencies, including the Office of Personnel Management and now the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Why we stay: SES in their own words

The SES has lost its luster in recent years, in part because of constrained program budgets, increased scrutiny from Congress, and a sense among members that political appointees are assuming more of the leadership responsibilities once reserved for them. In part two of our special report, Fixing the SES, five Senior Executive Service members tell Federal News Radio why they choose to stay in the service, and why they believe the SES may have its faults, but it's not broken.
