Bush nominates Denett for OFPP top job

The White House has nominated Paul Denett to be chief of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy.

If approved by the Senate, Denett would replace David Safavian, who resigned last September just before he was arrested on charges of obstructing a federal investigation and making false statements under oath.

Deputy OFPP administrator Robert Burton has been managing the agency since Safavian left.

Denett currently serves as vice president of contracting programs at ESI International of Arlington, Va., which provides contract and project management training courses. Before that, he was a senior vice president for program development and government affairs at Star Mountain Inc. of Alexandria, Va.

Prior to joining the private sector, Denett was the director of the Office of Procurement and senior procurement executive at the Treasury Department.

Denett received his bachelor's degree from Nasson College and his master's from George Washington University.
