Jerry McGinn, executive director of the Center for Government Contracting at George Mason University, discusses possible changes to management leadership at the Pentagon, and the future of the CMO position.

The Pentagon is considering eliminating the chief management officer position from their leadership, and Congress recently ordered two examinations of the role. Jerry McGinn, executive director of the Center for Government Contracting at George Mason University, says that the Pentagon has struggled to improve their business operations for years, and they might want to try something new.

 

“They have been doing this for two decades under the Business Transformation Agency first, then the deputy chief management officer, and now the chief management officer organization. The intent of this is unassailable in rationale, you want to have the best business practices in the Department of Defense,” McGinn said. “…The reality of the theory behind how the Pentagon works has just really struggled. That’s part of what’s behind this.”
