Acting undersecretary of the Air Force appointed

On July 3, President Barack Obama appointed Dr. Jamie Morin to serve as the acting undersecretary of the Air Force.

He will serve in this capacity effective immediately and until such time as a new undersecretary is nominated by the president and confirmed by the Senate.

Morin said he welcomed the new responsibilities.

“I appreciate the opportunity to make a difference for the Air Force and our nation while also digging more deeply into critical issues like space programs, energy efficiency, (Department of Defense) management reform, and the Air Force budget,” he said. “It will be exciting to work even more closely with great professionals like Secretary Panetta, Deputy Secretary Carter, Secretary Donley, General Schwartz, General Breedlove and our outstanding Air Force leaders here on the Air Staff and around the globe.”

Morin has served as the assistant secretary of the Air Force for financial management and comptroller since 2009.

Marilyn Thomas, the principal deputy in the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Financial Management and Comptroller, will perform Morin’s duties in SAF/FM while he is serving as undersecretary, except those duties that require action by a Senate-confirmed presidential appointee.
