Jason Miller, Executive Editor, Federal News Radio

Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske spoke with Tom Temin on the Federal Drive about the agency's push to hire more female agents, starting with the results of its recruitment drive.

Government-issued contracts usually include pages of boilerplate. Contractors ignore it at their peril. Buried in all that fine print might be clauses that can burn you. Contracting legal expert Tim Sullivan has authored the blog, "10 Myths of Government Contracting." He's been exploring these myths on the Federal Dive with Tom Temin. Today, Sullivan tackles the 10th and final myth: Solicitations are filled with standard provisions that don't require careful reading. Sullivan says, to the contrary.
