Government Executive November 1996 Vol.28, No.11

All Worked Up
The rebellion against family unfriendly workplaces is growing. So far, federal managers have been slow to respond.

Intelligence Lost
Who will fill the chairs of all the expert analysts who are expected to retire from the Defense Intelligence Agency in the next few years?

Regional Powerhouses
Once little more than social clubs for executives working in the field, Federal Executive Boards have become models for the partnership-based government of the next century.

No Way Out
The federal discrimination complaint process is a bureaucratic maze that often punishes the innocent and lets the guilty go free.

Squeeze Play
Caught by surprise, the agency comptroller must coax another $50 million out of senior managers who already have wrapped up their budget cutting plans for the year.

Systems Integration and Outsourcing Guide
Downsizing, reinvention, procurement reform and electronic commerce will change forever the way information technology is acquired and implemented by the government. Agencies are turning to systems integrators and outsourcers more and more for help keeping up with technology trends.
