Federal Drive with Tom Temin

Shutdown slows momentum of Trump administration's deregulation efforts

The border wall-induced standoff among Republicans and Democrats in Congress and President Donald Trump has put the breaks on one of the administration's signature initiatives ? namely deregulation, or reregulation. It's an effort that involves both the White House and many that remain without appropriations. For details, Bridget Dooling, former staff member of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, now a research professor at The George Washington University Regulatory Studies Center, joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin.

For going on 20 years, Congress and the public have read with a mixture of horror and fascination the reports coming out of the inspectors general, first for Iraq and then for Afghanistan reconstruction. They've detailed hundred of billions of dollars in spending and misspending. Now President Donald Trump has proposed making the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction reports secret. He called it insane that they're routinely released publicly, but the idea isn't going down too well with at least one long time good-government group. Mandy Smithberger, director of the center for defense information at the Project on Government Oversight, joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin for her reaction.

Automation won't put federal employees out of a job anytime soon, even those on furlough. But researchers at the General Services Administration said the spread of robotic process automation, now known as RPA, will change the future of government hiring. They say this branch of automation might make it easier to recruit the next generation of talent. Federal News Network's Jory Heckman had more on Federal Drive with Tom Temin.

In 2018, amid a growing economy and a demand to grow the force, the Army missed its recruiting goal for the first time in more than a decade.

A congressionally-chartered panel of defense acquisition experts Tuesday delivered the third of three promised sets of recommendations for modernizing how the Defense Department buys.

Even with all the focus and concern over the partial government shutdown, we can't lose sight on the potential and real impact technology will continue to have on agencies in 2019. From the Office of Management and Budget's continued push to move agencies to the cloud as part of the IT modernization focus to the never-ending battle to secure federal networks and data, 2019 is shaping up to be another year of change for federal IT. In his weekly feature, the Reporter's Notebook, Federal News Network Executive Editor Jason Miller asked six federal IT experts for their take on what to expect in 2019. He joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin for more details.

Congress remains at an impasse over much of the federal budget. In a few weeks it will have to agree whether to raise the debt ceiling threatening the next showdown. Yet at least in the House the new Congress has shown some bipartisanship in the way it governs itself. That might bode well for the future. The Firewall editor in chief David Hawkings joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin for more.

Securing federal facilities seems to be a never-ending challenge. What used to be a guard at a desk has morphed almost into an industry called physical access control systems. The General Services Administration approves the technologies and the vendors and the White House sets the parameters. They both need to do more work. Lori Rectanus, director of physical infrastructure issues at the Government Accountability Office, joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin for more.
