Government Executive June 1998 Vol.30, No.6

The New SES
Executives are in a lather over plans to change the Senior Executive Service.

Off Base
The failure of a 'privatization-in-place' plan for two huge air bases has made a political mess of the Pentagon's downsizing efforts.

Trade Tangle
Understaffed and underfunded trade agencies are struggling to enforce international trade agreements.

Dollars and Sense
Despite progress, agencies have a lot of ground to cover before they comply with new financial management laws.

Sea Change
With a new approach to capital asset management, the Coast Guard is showing how to replenish aging inventories on a tight budget.

Whistle Not, Want Not
Should a career executive go over the head of his political boss, whose directive is a recipe for waste, fraud and abuse, or should he find another job?

Special Section: E-Mail for the Enterprise
The world's largest e-mail system is being deployed in the Defense Department. In DoD and civilian agencies, a lot of business gets done via e-mail. But e-mail communications across agency boundaries remain far from frustration-free.
