The Business of Government Hour, hosted by Michael J. Keegan, features a conversation with government executives and thought leaders who are changing the way government does business. The show explores topics such as leadership, management, technology, innovation, public service, as well as the mission of government in the 21st century.


How is the federal government pursing shared services? When has the Interior Department used shared services? Will the move to shared services change under the new administration? Host Michael Keegan welcomes Scott Cameron, forming acting assistant secretary for policy, management and budget at the Interior Department as they explore these questions and more.
