In a repeat performance from last year, the House has included a major IT procurement reform plan as part of the 2015 Defense Authorization bill. Last year it got removed in conference. But this year a similar bill is rattling around the Senate. Plus, there have been some changes in the content of the House version. Trey Hodgkins is senior vice president for the public sector at the Information Technology Industry Council. He joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss the significant changes made in this year's version of FITARA.

Trey Hodgkins, senior vice president for the public sector at the Information Technology Industry Council, told Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp how contractors are reacting to the executive order.
