Bush taps Norquist for DHS chief financial officer post

President George W. Bush plans to nominate David L. Norquist to be chief financial officer of the Homeland Security Department, the White House said today.

The department's current CFO, Andy Maner, announced yesterday that he would resign, effective March 3.

Norquist now works as deputy undersecretary of Defense for budget and appropriations affairs. Formerly, he worked as acting principal deputy undersecretary of Defense-comptroller, as well as deputy undersecretary of Defense for financial management. Previously, he worked on the House Appropriations Committee staff.

Norquist holds bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Michigan, as well as a second master's degree from Georgetown University.

Maner led DHS' project to weave together a welter of financial systems to develop means of accessing unified accounting information. That project is not yet complete.

DHS earlier announced an enterprise resource planning system project, known as Emerge2, that would complete the consolidation project, but that work now is being realigned.
