DCMO Nominee Peter Levine: Financial, Business Mgmt Reviews on His Agenda

DoD logo resizePeter Levine has testified before a Senate committee about his nomination for the deputy chief management officer role at the Defense Department, Federal News Radio reported Wednesday.

He told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee Wednesday that he would prioritize the review of DoD’s financial and business management systems if he is confirmed by the Senate.

“We need to streamline processes and we need to look at organizations and make that process more efficient and less costly,” said Levine, according to the radio station.

He added to the committee that he believes that the defense acquisition process can also be improved without modifying policies.

“We are also going to have to look at a civilian hiring process that takes at least six months and maybe eight months to hire a single individual to work at the Department of Defense.”

If approved, Levine would succeed David Tillotson, who has served as acting DCMO since Beth McGrath stepped down in 2013.
