GovConJudicata Weekly Debrief (7/10–14)
This week's Weekly Debrief covers TMF funding, 2024 NDAA, Pentagon's solution to Discord leaks, and Space Force's next phase of national security launch services.
"The Senate Appropriations Committee passed a bill out of committee on Thursday that would rescind $290 million from the Technology Modernization Fund as lawmakers work on crafting government funding bills that fit into the debt ceiling deal reached earlier this year, which capped non-defense discretionary spending."
"The House on Friday narrowly passed its version of the fiscal 2024 defense authorization bill after Republicans secured several partisan amendments on hot-button social issues, prompting almost every Democrat to vote against it."
"The Defense Department is moving to improve oversight of personnel with access to classified information, appoint “top secret control officers” and establish a joint office for insider threats after a junior Air National Guardsman allegedly leaked troves of highly classified data on the Discord website."
"The Space Force’s solicitation for the next phase of national security launches will likely seek to distribute its most demanding missions among three providers, a change of course from its plan to choose just two companies to meet its space lift requirements."
