The Military Mind

June 1, 2006 It's tough to speak truth to willful civilian leaders. The men who command the Army, Navy and Air Force are expected to be inspirational and business leaders of the nation's largest institutions. Each must direct and motivate hundreds of thousands of personnel and oversee the spending of well over $100...

The Changing Navy

May 15, 2006 CNO Michael Mullen talks about what it will take to meet new security demands. When the latest war supplemental clears Congress this spring, it will add roughly $100 billion to the $250 billion in off-budget financing the Pentagon has received since the United States invaded Iraq in 2003. That's in...

By the Numbers

May 1, 2006 Here's a look at the numbers behind the outsourcing surge.

Unlike the competitive sourcing of existing government functions, this does not pit federal workers against private sector bidders....

Our Neighborhood

April 15, 2006 We seek to nurture the community of senior federal officials in print, in person and online.

Secrecy Is in the Air

March 15, 2006 On buckshot and other matters where silence has been less than golden. The press always has complained about the Bush administration's penchant for secrecy. So when Vice President Cheney and the White House press office delayed nearly a day before letting on about what Arlo Guthrie might have called the...

Renewing the Faith

March 1, 2006 Political appointees and their service to the nation. Whenever a new political appointee, with right hand raised, promises to protect and defend the Constitution, it's a step forward for our democratic system, or so I would argue. Even if one disapproves of the appointee's past affiliations or record, the ceremony...

Death of a Journalist

February 1, 2006 David E. Rosenbaum set a standard to which all the media should aspire. In a random murder last month, Washington lost one of the people who exemplified the best qualities, and the vital role, of our nation's free press. The victim was David E. Rosenbaum of The New York Times,...

Redefining National Security

January 1, 2006 Agencies slowly embrace new missions and strategies. For the thousands of Government Executive readers who live in the Capital region, security questions are rarely far from top of mind. As a prime target for terrorists, we know that a dirty bomb, biological attack, or worse could come our way. And...

The Managers of Finance

December 1, 2005 Progress in financial management also brings burdens of rising expectations. More than most in government today, Linda Morrison Combs offers an example of true perseverance toward the worthy goal of improving its financial accountability.
