Susan Chadick is the new general counsel for the Defense Contract Audit Agency according to a Pentagon announcement Tuesday.

Chadick replaces John Farenish, who in December joined the government contracts practice at law firm Venable LLP after serving eight years as DCAA general counsel.

Prior to her new assignment, Chadick had served as deputy general counsel for the Defense Logistics Agency since 2000, also holding the role of special assistant for contracting integrity

Chadick joined the DLA in 1997 as deputy general counsel for administration and finance. Prior to joining DLA, she served in the top two legal positions at the Defense Information Systems Agency. Chadick joined DISA as deputy general counsel in 1986, when the agency was then known as the Defense Communications Agency.

In 1990 she was named the agency’s general counsel and appointed to the Senior Executive Service, whose members serve in positions just below presidential appointees. She was also DISA’s designated ethics official.

Chadick also has previously served in the Justice Department as a senior contracts attorney within the department’s management division. She represented DOJ in hearings before the General Services Board of Contract Appeals, consolidated into the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals in 2007, and the Transportation Department‘s contract appeals board.
