The federal agency at the head of the response to Ebola is suffering a crisis of confidence. Only 37 percent of the public is confident in the response by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, according to a CBS News poll that was conducted before the announcement of a case in New York City. Tom Shoop is Editor in Chief at Government Executive Magazine. He outlined recent missteps by the CDC in a recent article. On In Depth with Francis Rose, Shoop said that the agency needs to create a culture of accountability.
The results of the 2014 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey show fewer than half of federal employees think their senior leaders maintain high levels of honesty and integrity. It's just one of the pieces of bad news in the new survey results that were released Oct. 24. Kathryn Medina of APCO Worldwide is former executive director of the Chief Human Capital Officers Council at the Office of Personnel Management. She told Francis Rose on In Depth that the only surprise is that the bad news isn't worse.
Bad news from the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey could be a lot worse. Federal employees' opinions of senior management falls to a five-year low, according to the results from the Office of Personnel Management. Positive responses for 32 of 77 questions are down this year, mostly by about a percentage point. Federal News Radio Reporter Emily Kopp tells In Depth with Francis Rose what most federal employees are saying.
DoD published its first-ever joint doctrine for military operations in cyberspace a year and a half ago. But the document was secret -- until this week. The Pentagon has now released a declassified version. Much of it is a retread of what DoD officials have already said in public, but there are a handful of eyebrow-raisers too. Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu writes about it in this week's edition of Inside the Reporter's Notebook.
Four things you might not know, but should, about the federal workforce, based on the 2014 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey by the Office of Personnel Management.
Adele Ratcliff, Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Manufacturing and Industrial Base Policy
The Defense Department wants to maintain its technological advantage in warfare. To do so, it relies on the U.S. industrial base. Next month, DoD will launch a competition to develop a new Institute for Manufacturing. But not just any manufacturing, in this case the work will have to involve photonics. The awardee will receive $110 million to jump start the institute. Adele Ratcliff is director of Manufacturing Technology in DoD's Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Manufacturing and Industrial Base Policy. She joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the objective of the new institute.
In a study destined to produce big headlines, the Government Accountability Office finds thousands of federal employees are taking prolonged periods of administrative leave. In the past three years, more than 50,000 employees were on paid leave for up to three months. But for most federal employees, paid time off amounts to about a day per year. Chris Mihm, managing director for Strategic Issues at GAO, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss what they found.
Federal employees' opinions of senior leaders are at a five-year low, based on the Office of Personnel Management's survey of nearly 400,000 employees across government. More broadly, the survey suggests employees are even less enthusiastic about their jobs than they were last year, when OPM warned agencies to heed signs of low morale.

The U.S. has kept combat forces on the Korean Peninsula since the Korean War fighting halted on July 27, 1953, with the signing of an armistice.

For years, the White House has been prodding agencies to cut costs by using shared services. But like the proverbial water trough, sometimes the horses don't drink. Now the Office of Management and Budget has once again deputized the General Services Administration to help it turn policy into reality. GSA will set up a program office to help agencies get over the most common hurdles to using shared services. Federal News Radio's Emily Kopp joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with details.
