President Joe Biden will nominate Caral Spangler to become assistant secretary of the Army (financial management and comptroller), the White House announced late last week. Spangler retired last year after almost 40 years of career service in defense financial management, including positions in every military service.

“[S]he has had oversight of every aspect of programming, budgeting, accounting, finance, financial systems, program and cost analysis in the Department of Defense,” the White House noted in an official bio.
