The Public Manager Winter 2014
The Winter issue of The Public Manager tackles the complex issues surround the federal acquisitions and contracting regulations. While most everyone agrees on the need for acquisition reform, there is little agreement on what form it should take. A Q&A with Labor Secretary Thomas E. Perez highlights the need to create workforce development programs that can help match skills to job needs that exist today. Some of the articles in this issue examine the state of mind of government workers, the tools and resources emerging to help sustain the workforce, and trends that will affect government workers in the future.
