White House to Nominate John Whitley as CAPE Director

White House to Nominate John Whitley as CAPE Director

The White House plans to nominate John Whitley as director of the Pentagon's Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation office. He currently serves as the Army's assistant secretary for financial management and comptroller. If he is nominated, Whitley will join William Jordan Gillis, who was nominated as the next assistant secretary of defense for sustainment. Despite objections from inside the Pentagon, the White House barred the nomination of acting comptroller Elaine McCusker for her supposed lack of loyalty to the president, Defense News reported Monday. Whitley's other prior roles include senior fellow at the Institute for Defense Analyses and the Center for Naval Analysis, director of program analysis and evaluation at the Department of Homeland Security and operations research analyst at the Office of the Secretary of Defense.
