IT Alliance for Public Sector experts say there are two major reasons for their fleeting hope—one is the little time lawmakers have in Washington over the next four months; and second is the continued impasse among the Senate and House over the role of agency CIOs. ITAPS says a two-and-a-half month continuing resolution is likely and an omnibus spending bill for 2015 is gaining support.

Bill Woods, Acquisition & Sourcing Management Issues Director, GAO

It's been a while since the problems surrounding HealthCare.gov were front page news.

Bill Woods is Director of Acquisition and Sourcing Management Issues at the GAO. On In Depth with guest host Jared Serbu, he shared some conclusions from their examination of the acquisition challenges at CMS.
