Maj. Gen. William F. Moore is deputy director of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition and Technology, Washington, D.C.

As the deputy director, the general is responsible for directing the activities of the more than 2,000 military and civilian people assigned to the agency, and for prioritizing and overseeing an annual investment and operations budget of almost $2 billion.

The general was commissioned in the Air Force in June 1969. He has served as director of special programs, Office of the Undersecretary for Acquisition and Technology; program executive officer for bombers, missiles and trainers under the assistant secretary of the Air Force for acquisition, the Pentagon; vice commander, San Antonio Air Logistics Center; deputy director of strategic, special operations forces and airlift programs, the Pentagon, and system program director on the small intercontinental ballistic missile program. The general has held several technical management positions on other major Air Force development and acquisition programs, such as the Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile and the Peacekeeper ICBM. He is a fully certified acquisition professional.
