Accountability Board to soon welcome new chair

Richard Ginman, a senior official in the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, will soon have a new gig in chairing the Government Accountability and Transparency Board, according to Federal News Radio.

Ginman has served as director of defense procurement and acquisition policy since June 2011. His role prior to that was as deputy director in the same office, a position in which he was the principal adviser to the director for all contracting and procurement policy areas.

Ginman spent nearly 40 years in government and commercial business in areas such as contracting, acquisition management, logistics and financial management. His career includes tours at the Naval Ordnance Systems Command; the Naval Regional Contracting Office, Long Beach; and the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

A June 2011 executive order established the GAT Board. Its mission is to identify adoption guidelines for integrating systems that support the collection and display of federal spending data.
