Senior Army acquisition official resigns

One of the Army’s top acquisition officials has resigned from his position, according to several new reports.

Malcolm O’Neill, assistant secretary of the Army for acquisition, logistics and technology, notified his staff in an e-mail sent May 31. He’s leaving the job because of personal reasons. Defense News reports it’s a mental health-related issue.

He had the job since March 2010.

O'Neill worked closely with Ashton Carter, under secretary of defense for acquisition, technology and logistics on the Better Buying Power Initiative, the Defense Department's approach to saving money and being more efficient.
