In God We Trust, All Others We Audit. While leaders may possess the best skills and intentions, an independent external audit provides additional confidence regarding the proper financial management and discharge of related duties by both Party officials, as well the contracted services of external CPA entities.
I would be honored to serve on the Audit Committee, and believe the following experiences would bring value to the Committee and Party during my term (if selected).
1) Leading a 45-member team, with an additional 25 supporting, in the comprehensive evaluation of $40+ billion in contracting/acquisition activity annually (counter-threat finance analysis), coordinating with US and international legal and law enforcement organizations in the prosecution of criminal and malign actors,
2) Reviewing, evaluating and sometimes even mediating financial claims against the US Government while a law clerk for the US Court of Federal Claims,
3) Serving as a certified Contracting Officer Representative (COR), providing technical, programmatic and financial management of multiple government projects (in accordance with applicable law, procedure and best practices)
4) Lean Six Sigma Green Belt - applying continuous process improvement principles, including statistical analysis, towards increasing efficiency and effectiveness across multiple programs.
