The Agriculture Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development are at loggerheads over a computer application called Web Based Supply Chain Management system. USAID quit using it shortly after it rolled out in 2011. Agriculture officials say they’ve fixed the problems. They say the information USAID is tracking outside the system isn’t always accurate. Thomas Melito, director of International Affairs and Trade Issues at the Government Accountability Office, looked into this spat and shared what he found with Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp.
