2021 has presented a host of challenges and new programs for the federal workforce and leaders in government. “Government Matters” asked federal reporters what their top stories were from this year.

  • Leo Shane III, deputy editor at Military Times, said one of the biggest stories was the Department of Veterans Affairs electronic medical records overhaul, with the department trying to move to the same system as the Defense Department so troops and veterans have a single medical record that follows them from enlistment through after military separation.
  • Natalie Alms, reporter at Federal Computer Week, said a question that came up this year was how broadened access to telework since the pandemic could be a tool to increase accessibility in the federal government.
  • Kevin Bogardus, reporter at E&E News, highlighted President Biden’s effort to increase engagement between agencies and employee unions, a change since the Trump administration.
