Financial Mgmt Pro David Norquist Confirmed as Pentagon’s Comptroller

The Senate on Thursday voted unanimously to confirm David Norquist, a former partner at Alexandria, Virginia-based financial services contractor Kearney & Company, as comptroller of the Defense Department, Inside Defense reported Thursday.

President Donald Trump nominated Norquist to the DoD comptroller post in March.

Norquist said during his confirmation hearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee earlier this month that he believes the size and complexity of the department’s organizational structure should not affect its readiness to undergo a full-scope audit.

He joined Kearney in 2008 after service as chief financial officer at the Department of Homeland Security.

The 27-year financial management veteran previously served as budget analyst at the Department of the Army and director of resource management at the Army Intelligence and Security Command.
