The top jobs in the intelligence community, including the National Security Agency, the CIA and the Defense Intelligence Agency, are classified and only recently became public.
The NSA has not had an annual report for a decade.
The CIA has never published an annual summary of its personnel.
The Defense Intelligence Corporation has a one-page annual report but is not publicly available.
These agencies do not release their top jobs, which is why a 2016 CIA summary is the most recent annual summary released to the public.
According to an estimate by the Government Accountability Office, the average annual salary for NSA employees is $1.3 million.
The average salary for the top positions at the CIA is $3.2 million.
While the intelligence agencies are required to keep confidential the pay and benefits of its employees, the government does not publish such information publicly.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is currently suing the Department of Defense to make the information public.
“These programs are so important, we need to protect them,” said James Lewis, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), a think tank.
“The American people need to know about the people in these positions.
It’s not just about the top brass.
They’re the ones who are making the decisions that are driving these programs and that have to be protected.”
The Pentagon and the Department for Homeland Security have both announced that they are reviewing the NSA’s pay and benefit system.
CSIS has published a study that found that NSA employees are paid far below their peers in other government agencies.
“We have to have an audit and an accounting of how these programs are being funded,” Lewis said.
“And if it’s not accurate, then we need a public accounting.”
By Gauri Kumar (Indian Express) The BJP government has announced that it has taken the first steps towards revising the existing National Education Act and making it applicable to higher education.
In a move that will put in place a new set of rules, the government will, in the course of five years, revise the existing Act, which currently applies to the entire country.
The National Education Reform (NERA) Bill, 2017 was tabled in the Rajya Sabha last month and the government said it had received the amendments that are required to bring in NERA as an Act.
In order to amend NERA, the BJP-ruled government has decided to amend the existing Civil Service and Central Provident Fund Act to make it applicable only to higher educational institutions.
The Act would also make it mandatory for the government to provide financial assistance to any educational institution, including a government-owned one, that has been found to be in violation of the existing laws.
The changes will make the current Act applicable to all higher education institutions.
Under NERA’s current provisions, the law states that “a government-controlled institution, or an educational institution that is affiliated with the Government of India, shall be exempt from the provisions of this Act”.
The amended Act will make it a criminal offence for any person to knowingly contravene this Act.
The proposed amendments have been framed under the Prevention of Corruption Act, 2017.
For the past four years, the National Advisory Committee on Education (NCAE) had recommended that the government amend NERA so that it would apply to higher ed institutions.
However, the NCAE had recommended instead that the existing NERAs should be revised to make NERAW (Nedu-Ulaan) applicable to universities and colleges, and the NRE (Nel-Nel) applicable only for the education sector.
Under the proposed revisions, the new Act will now make NERA applicable to institutions that are part of the National Institutes of Technology (NITs) or other colleges, universities, colleges, colleges or institutes that have been identified as being in violation under NERAS.
This will be done by making the definition of NERAR (National Education Reform) applicable.
The government will also take steps to revise the provisions that provide for the compensation of persons injured in the performance of their duties in the administration of higher education, and make provision for the registration of persons who have been suspended or expelled from higher education courses.
As per the amendments, the following provisions will be applicable to the educational sector: 1) The provisions relating to compensation of any person injured in his/her performance of his/ her duties in connection with the administration or maintenance of a higher education institution shall be applicable only in cases where such injury is due to the wilful contravention of the provisions under NERA; 2) The compensation of such person shall be not less than Rs 10 lakh for the first injury, Rs 30 lakh for subsequent injuries, and Rs 50 lakh for each subsequent injury; 3) The provision that compensation of an educational or vocational institution shall not exceed Rs 10 crore for the management of a financial deficit of Rs 10,000 crore shall not apply to such institution; 4) The liability of a government department to pay compensation to any person aggrieved by the performance or non-performance of its duties in its capacity as administrator or conservator shall not be excluded from the compensation payable by the state to the government of the State.
5) Any person aggressed against by the provisions contained in the amendments shall be entitled to be provided a remedy to be considered by the courts for the remedial purpose; and 6) Any such person aggressant shall be eligible for compensation under the provisions as amended.
The NERaw legislation also provides that a person may be disqualified from performing duties as an administrator, conservator, director or any other person or institution if such person is unable to act on his/ hers own account, has no legal capacity to act as administrator, and has wilfully and wilfully contravened any of the above provisions.
The amended legislation is expected to be passed by the Lok Sabha and then be sent to the Cabinet for consideration.
Trump wants to give every military veteran the option of becoming an Express Personnel Services officer
Trump is seeking to give military veterans the option to become the first members of their branch of the armed forces to become a full-time officer.
The move, the latest in a series of steps to expand access to the military and create more career opportunities for women, was first reported by Axios.
It would allow service members who have served more than one combat mission, and have been injured, or who have lost their legs or arms, to earn up to four years of service on an Express personnel service plan, which is designed to make it easier for people to join the armed services.
The plan would also allow service soldiers to become Express personnel officers, meaning they could work with other federal agencies like the Department of Housing and Urban Development or the Department for Veterans Affairs.
In a press release on Thursday, Trump’s administration touted the plans as part of efforts to modernize the military.
The White House has already released a list of 21 requirements for military service, which would include having a minimum of a high school diploma and having at least a bachelor’s degree, and Trump has also outlined steps to streamline the military’s workforce and expand its operations.
The military’s most recent budget request, for fiscal year 2019, proposed giving the armed service the option for a total of 4,000 more Express personnel officer positions.
In addition to Express personnel, Trump is also asking Congress to give veterans more choice in how to apply for military benefits, including the ability to pay for their own health care and pay for out-of-pocket expenses, which the military has been struggling with.
Trump’s military service-related travel restrictions have been a major source of concern for veterans, as he has tried to make veterans wait weeks and sometimes months for care at military hospitals.
