President Trump intends to nominate John Whitley to be director of the Pentagon's cost assessment and program evaluation office, according to a White House announcement.

Whitley currently serves as assistant secretary of the Army for financial management and comptroller.

Whitley, who joined the Trump administration as Army comptroller in September 2018, has been performing the duties of CAPE director since the post was vacated by Bob Daigle last May.

He was previously a senior fellow at the Institute for Defense Analyses and the Center for Naval Analysis.
