Uptick in disability discrimination claims could jeopardize hiring goals, firm says

In a July 2010 executive order, President Barack Obama pushed agencies to hire more people with disabilities, aiming for 100,000 workers by 2015. Agencies have made steady progress toward that goal. However that progress could be in jeopardy: Complaints alleging disability discrimination in federal hiring and appointments have ticked upward over the past five years, according to an analysis by the law firm Tully Rinckey.

Is sequestration a paper tiger?

Stan Collender, a budget expert and partner at Qorvis Communications, said nobody should panic just yet about possible automatic, across-the- board cuts. They won't be enacted immediately, he told the Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Amy Morris. And Congress could still wiggle out of them.

Accelerate and Streamline for Better Customer Service

For government agencies already striving to do more with less, demands to improve customer service present a complex challenge to staff, systems, and technology which may already be pressed to the limit. In addition to federal mandates, such as President Obama's Executive Order 13571 to streamline service delivery and to improve customer service, many citizens now expect to interact with government using new self-service, web-based interfaces, which can be difficult to support on the aging technological infrastructures in many government agencies. And in times of economic downturn, citizens' need for responsive government services rise sharply as pressure on agencies' customer service operations increase—from the top down and the grassroots up.

Agencies face 'hodge-podge' guidance on security clearances

The federal government has issued more than 4.8 million security clearances to federal civilians, military service members and contractors.

Moran takes pragmatic approach to SES reform

Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) said a realistic approach is needed to reform the Senior Executive Service. His bill would automatically increase pay for highly rated SESers. However, the bill leaves out controversial provisions requiring mandatory agency rotations for SES members. The pragmatic approach is necessary to "rescue" the program which has struggled with recruiting new members.
