President Donald Trump intends to nominate Alan Shaffer, formerly director of science and technology at the NATO Collaboration Support Office, to be deputy undersecretary for acquisition and sustainment at the Defense Department.

He managed DoD’s approximately $25 billion research and engineering budget in his previous role as principal deputy and assistant defense secretary for that area, the White House said Tuesday.

In that capacity, he also managed science and technology, developmental test and evaluation and systems engineering programs.

Shaffer served in the U.S. Air Force for 27 years before he entered the Senior Executive Service in 2000.
