The FBI cannot compete with the private sector when it comes to attracting top cybersecurity talent, according to a new FBI OIG report.
David Stegon was a staff reporter for FedScoop and StateScoop from 2011-2014.
Schools within the Department of Defense Education Activity, which serves 84,000 students at 194 schools, will struggle to maintain an accredited school year because of sequestration, a Pentagon official said.
DOD spokesman George Little said summer school will not be impacted by civilian-employee furloughs, but the first month of the 2014 school year could be.
“We’re mindful that we need to protect the education of military children,” Little said, but added that DODEA teachers and support personnel are subject to the furlough.
DOD civilian personnel will be furloughed one day a week from April through the end of September, unless Congress intervenes.
Little said sequestration will also impact the Defense Commissary Agency with 247 commissaries around the world to be closed an additional day per week. Furloughs will cut into commissary workers’ paychecks at the same time furloughs begin, around the end of April.
