WASHINGTON (AFNS) -- The president of the United States nominated the Air Force's assistant secretary of financial management and comptroller to a department of defense level position Sept. 11.

Dr. Jamie Morin has been nominated as the director of cost assessment and program evaluation.

If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Morin will be the principal staff assistant to the secretary of defense for cost assessment and program evaluation. He will be in charge of a wide span of financial responsibilities, which include ensuring the costs of Defense Department programs, including classified programs, are presented accurately and completely; provide leadership in developing and promoting improved analytical tools and methods for analyzing national security planning and the allocation of resources; assess effects of DOD spending on the U.S. economy, and evaluate alternative policies to ensure that DOD programs can be implemented efficiently.

“I’m honored to be nominated as the director of Cost Assessment and program evaluation for the (DOD),” Morin said. “It’s a remarkable opportunity at a critical time for DOD and the nation. While I am preparing for the confirmation process, I look forward to continuing to work with and on behalf of the great Airmen in my current role.”

In his current job, Morin serves as the principal adviser to the secretary and chief of staff of the Air Force on all financial matters. He is responsible for providing the financial management and analytical services necessary for the effective and efficient use of Air Force resources, to include nearly 700,000 military and civilian personnel and a budget of $110 billion.

This includes directing the development of the Air Force budget, overseeing the Air Force Cost Analysis Agency's acquisition and operational cost analysis, and conducting Air Force accounting and finance operations.

Morin was confirmed as the 21st assistant secretary of the Air Force for financial management and comptroller June 19, 2009. Additionally, the president appointed him as acting undersecretary of the Air Force for 10 months from July 3, 2012 until April 29, 2013, during which Morin served as the Air Force's chief management officer, senior energy official, chair of the Air Force Space Board, and acting secretary of the Air Force during absences of the secretary.

As acting undersecretary, he led the Air Force's efforts to implement funding reductions under the Budget Control Act while protecting readiness and high priority modernization programs.
