These are the stories Federal News Radio reporters are working on today.

  • A former senior SBA official may have violated the competition in contracting act. Federal News Radio’s Jason Miller brings us the fourth and final part of his special investigative series, Discouraged and Disrespected at SBA.
  • The Departments of Veterans Affairs and Housing and Urban Development have joined together on a numbers-crunching project that they say gives them a much clearer picture of the problem of veterans homelessness. Reporter Jared Serbu has the full report.
  • For too long, the Government Performance and Results Act asked the wrong questions, and supported evaluations that were too slow and too expensive.

But former federal officials believe the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act – or GPRA 2.0 will be different. Reporter Meg Beasley has the full report.
  • In Depth host Francis Rose spoke with Max Hall about how to develop successful programs during a government reorganization.
