Commerce takes bigger oversight role in its bureaus' cybersecurity

Cybersecurity within the Commerce Department has traditionally been overseen and managed by its 14 individual bureaus. Those agencies will still operate their own IT systems, but a new Commercewide oversight center will aggregate all information about the department's vulnerabilities into a single dashboard to be used by senior management.

The Veterans Affairs Department is on the street with a new procurement to replace its patient scheduling system. The department has used the current system since 1986. It's the one scheduling staff used to manipulate data on patient waiting times in Phoenix and several other locations across the country. Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu writes about this RFP and more in this week's edition of Inside the Reporter's Notebook.

The Department of Veterans Affairs is out with a new procurement to fix its patient scheduling system -- the one it's been using since 1986 -- and the one that staffers used to manipulate data on patient waiting times in Phoenix and in several other locations across the country. VA wants to buy a commercial off-the-shelf solution to do the job, but it's estimating it'll cost up to $700 million. Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu tells In Depth with Francis Rose why in this week's edition of Inside the Reporter's Notebook.

DoD's 'vertical integration,' effort to further pare administrative costs

Two early pilot programs have shown the Pentagon that it can reduce overhead spending by carefully studying its excess costs rather than cutting each office's budget by an arbitrary figure. Once expanded across DoD's support agencies, the savings could run into the billions.

Never mind sequestration, Pentagon to seek budget boost in 2016

The Defense Department already had telegraphed that it would request more money than sequestration allows for in 2016. But the military's top officer said Wednesday that new missions involving Ebola, the Islamic State and Russia likely will push DoD's funding request even higher.

New missions the Defense Department has taken on in the past year strengthen the resolve of Pentagon leaders to ask Congress to bust its budget caps. The Pentagon has already made clear that it doesn't believe sequestration-level budgets in 2016 and beyond will provide enough money to run the military effectively.
