Tough budget times at the Pentagon and other Federal agencies aren’t new, and agencies with the right tools and partners can make it through. Wood Parker, President and CEO of TASC, joined me in studio today, despite the snow, to talk about how your agency can manage the budget storm that’s coming.
The tightening of the 1990s is the last time we’ve seen anything like this, Wood told me. “At that time, there was a huge consolidation of companies in the defense industry and in the intelligence industry. Now…we’ve seen a number of divestitures.”
