The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is asking Congress for a larger budget in fiscal 2015. The White House proposes an extra $3.5 million for a total just over $1 billion. James Corbett, director of the Acquisition Management Division at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, appeared in studio on Executive Suite as part of In Depth with Francis Rose.
Sen. Tom Coburn's (R-Okla.) report on cybersecurity and critical infrastructure in the federal government examined more than 40 inspector general audits and revealed gaping holes in the security of agencies' systems.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission closed Thursday on day 10 of the government shutdown. The agency stayed open until exhausting its carryover funds.
Congress' failure to agree on a short-term funding measure last week immediately threw agencies into shutdown mode, shutting offices and sending hundreds of thousands of federal employees home without pay. But as the shutdown stretches into its second week with no end in sight, a round of second-order effects is beginning to ripple throughout government.
The Senate has confirmed Allison Macfarlane for a new term as chairwoman of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Darren Ash, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's CIO, said the agency is reviewing vendor responses to a sources sought notice in preparation to move systems to the cloud. NRC employees also are piloting mobile devices.

DHS and HHS were praised by the committee for their approach to consolidating office space.

Geologist Allison Macfarlane will replace Gregory Jaczko, who announced his resignation last month after a tumultuous three-year tenure.
President Barack Obama said he plans to nominate Allison Macfarlane to lead the Nuclear Regulatory Agency, just days after the embattled head of the agency announced he would step down.
Gregory Jaczko is stepping down after more than a year of scrutiny from his colleagues.
It's a good time for career employees at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to lay low and stay in their cubicles. A nasty political fight over President Obama's Republican, female commissioner nominee, Kristine Svinicki, has caused Chairman Gregory Jaczko to publicly deny he is abusive towards women.
The head of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission says allegations that he mistreats women are, in his words, `'categorically untrue."
NRC Chairman Gregory Jaczko says he has "the utmost respect" for men and women at the nuclear agency, which oversees safety at the nation's 104 commercial reactors.
