There's no doubt federal employees would like a pay raise in 2015. But whether they will get it and how much it will be worth is still up for debate. Federal News Radio Web Manager Julia Ziegler told Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp what feds had to say.
The government is on high alert for insider threats. From shootings on military base to cybersecurity leaks, it may seem like your officemate could turn into your agency's worst nightmare. Agencies struggle with appropriate ways to migrate threats. Mike Gelles, a former chief psychologist for the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and now with Deloitte, talked about the threats with Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp.
For the first time in seven years, government leaders expect agencies to meet a major contracting goal. They awarded 23 percent of all prime contracts to small firms last year. But some in the contracting community see warning signs that signal bigger problems. Federal News Radio Executive Editor Jason Miller told Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp why some want to rain on the small business success parade.

The Commerce Department's International Trade Administration will open an office in Myanmar, also known as Burma. The country's economy, once virtually closed, is now growing at more than 6.5 percent a year. The decision to open an office is part of an effort to help U.S. businesses navigate emerging markets in Asia and Africa. Holly Vineyard, deputy assistant secretary for Asia at the International Trade Administration, explained to Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp why Commerce picked Myanmar for the first new office.
The Army breaks ground Friday on a giant solar array at sunny Fort Huachuca in Arizona. Once built, it will provide about a quarter of the energy needed to power the mid-sized base. It will be the largest solar project in the military's portfolio for a while. Amanda Simpson, executive director for the U.S. Army's Energy Initiatives Task Force, described the scope of the project to Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp.
So you don't think the federal bureaucracy is so creative? A new analysis of the latest Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey shows innovation in government is on the wane. Just one-third of federal employees say their agencies reward outside-the-box thinking. The Partnership for Public Service and its partners in the analysis find some bright spots, however. At the top is NASA. Author Rod Pyle has written a new book on the agency, called Innovation the NASA Way. He told Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp about his book.
The Millennium Challenge Corporation is a young, small agency with a big mission. It seeks to help countries climb out of poverty. Its principles should sound familiar: Use evidence, focus on results, be transparent. Time and again, the White House has asked all agencies to apply those principles to their own work. But putting them into practice can require tradeoffs. Sarah Jane Staats, senior policy adviser for the Millennium Challenge Corporation, told Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp how the agency applies its principles day to day.
President Barack Obama wants the government to lead by example. He asks agencies to triple their use of renewable electricity sources by 2020 and get at least one-fifth of their energy from renewables. Willie Taylor, director of the Office of Environmental Policy and Compliance at the Interior Department, explained to Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp how his agency plans to meet the goal.
It's that time of year again, when Bloomberg Government ranks the top 200 federal contractors. Which ones made it through 2013's ups and downs intact? Which ones thrived? Evan Croen, director of government sales research with Bloomberg Government, explained the 2013 contracting environment to Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp.
Budget cuts have left the IRS high and dry. The Government Accountability Office says the agency has absorbed $900 million in cuts over the past four years. At the same time, the agency is failing to keep up with a growing source of tax revenue: large partnerships. Congress has raised concerns about the extent to which the IRS is able to audit these entities. Jim White, director of tax issues at the GAO, told Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp about the partnerships.
