Obama appoints DoD acquisition policy chief to head spending watchdog
Thursday - 7/5/2012, 8:18pm EDT
Ginman has served as the director of Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy (DPAP) for a little more than year. He previously served as the deputy director for three years starting in 2008 and in other positions in the office before that.
Ginman retired as a Navy rear admiral in 2000, after serving in high-ranking acquisition positions throughout the service in the 1990s. Ginman also has experience in the private sector, including a stint leading General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems' maritime information unit.
Obama created the GAT Board in a June 2011 executive order as part of the administration's Campaign to Cut Waste initiatives. The board was designed to increase transparency surrounding federal spending, modeled on a similar effort to track spending disbursed by the 2009 Recovery Act.
The governmentwide board is staffed with a number of high-profile agency officials, including inspectors general and acquisition and financial chiefs.
The last GAT Board meeting was scheduled for June 2012.
