Sharon Bradford Franklin, Executive Director, Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board

The law has come under fire since Edward Snowden leaked documents on NSA programs a year ago. Sharon Bradford Franklin, executive director of the PCLOB, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to talk about the board's investigation.

Jason Miller, Executive Editor, Federal News Radio

The General Services Administration's 18F has more business than it can handle. The special software development team has agreements with about 17 agencies. That's bringing in a constant stream of work. That demand for development is driving a new blanket purchase agreement (BPA) for agile development services. It needs to offer alternative sources for agencies needing fast turnaround applications. Greg Godbout is the executive director of 18F. On the Federal Drive with Tom Temin, he tells executive editor Jason Miller about plans to get the BPA up and running in the coming year.

Tim Sullivan, Partner, Thompson Coburn LLP

One of the worst mistakes a company can make in performing a government contract is to treat its customer exactly the same way it treats its commercial customers. Because the government is a very different animal. Tim Sullivan is a partner at the law firm Thompson Coburn, and author of the blog, "A Government Contractor's 10 Commandments." This week he explores the fifth commandment: You shall document your actions. On the Federal Drive with Tom Temin, he explained why that concept is more urgent in federal space than the commercial one.

Shawn Moran, Vice President, National Border Patrol Council

As part of the Obama administration's strategy for dealing with immigration, immigration enforcement and customs and border patrol officers have new orders. They must now ask immigrants they encounter living in the country illegally whether they might qualify to avoid deportation. Agents also have been told to review government files to identify any jailed immigrants they might be able to release. It means a lot for work and a new change in mind-set for Customs and Border Protection agents. Shawn Moran, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain how it's going.
