Ginman Reflects on Four Decades in Defense Procurement

Posted March 11, 2015 at 4:55am

“Richard Ginman, one of the most influential figures in defense acquisition for nearly a decade decided to call it a career late last month, and pointed to major advances in DoD’s acumen in executing contracts in war zones and for services as points of pride during his latest tour in the Pentagon, where he served most recently as the director of Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy (DPAP),” Federal News Radio reports.  

On the other hand, there’s an awful lot that’s stayed the same over the 42 years Ginman has spent in the defense procurement world, he said in an interview a few days before his retirement ceremony.
