Letter to the Editor

The Office of Management and Budget is aggressively pushing for agencies to conduct A-76 operations, with IT being a major target.

The likely outcome will be to substantially reduce the number of federal IT workers, demoralize those that remain, and discourage young IT workers from entering a career of federal public service.

What's wrong with this picture?
