New DHS CFO nominee: David Norquist

Filed under: DHS News — by Christian Beckner on January 17, 2006

Following the DHS announcement about the departure of CFO Andy Maner earlier today, the White House wasted no time in nominating his replacement:

The President intends to nominate David L. Norquist, of Virginia, to be Chief Financial Officer at the Department of Homeland Security. Mr. Norquist currently serves as Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Budget and Appropriations Affairs). Prior to this, he served as Acting Principal Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller), as well as Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Financial Management). Earlier in his career, Mr. Norquist served on the professional staff of the House Appropriations Committee. Mr. Norquist received his bachelor’s degree and master’s degree from the University of Michigan. He went on to receive a second master’s degree from Georgetown University.

Update (1/19): Shaun Waterman at UPI has a good story today on the challenges that Norquist would face as the new CFO.
