The nonprofit trade association CompTIA is buying one of its public sector competitors. It’s merging with TechAmerica to boost its own public sector organization. That announcement today comes right after Friday’s announcement that TechAmerica settled a multi-million dollar lawsuit with the Information Technology Industry Council. Elizabeth Hyman, executive vice president of public policy at CompTIA, fills in In Depth with Francis Rose on the details.
Francis Rose is the host of In Depth, which airs weekdays from 4-7 p.m. on 1500 AM in the Washington, DC metro area and online everywhere. Francis has covered all three branches of the federal government as a broadcast journalist since 1998. He joined Federal News Radio in 2006 as the producer and news anchor of the station’s morning drive program, the Federal Drive. He launched In Depth in 2008 as a daily show focused on connecting federal executives to the information they need to do their jobs better.
