DOD Contract Management Office Welcomes New Director

A Department of Defense office has welcomed a new leader to its ranks.

On Wednesday, Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Gregory Masiello, a past POC event speaker, took over as the director of the Defense Contract Management Agency. He will be in charge of the agency’s over 10,900 personnel engaged in handling more than 225,000 contracts with an estimated value of over $3.72 trillion, DVIDS reported.

Masiello, who is replacing Army Lt. Gen. David Bassett, also a past POC speaker, recently worked as program executive officer for the Air, Anti-Submarine Warfare, Assault and Special Mission Programs. According to his LinkedIn profile, the new DCMA chief held several leadership roles, including assistant commander for logistics and industrial operations for the Naval Air Systems Command.

The new DCMA chief will lead an office specializing in contract administration for DOD, other federal agencies and international partners. He will oversee a workforce handling about 1,000 new contracts, taking action on more than a million-and-a-half items and authorizing over $650 million in payments every business day.

Masiello is among several officials present at a panel discussion during the Potomac Officers Club’s 2020 Navy Forum, where he shared his views on the decentralization and digitization initiatives of the Navy.
