So, it has begun. The confirmation process for now OFCCP Director Craig Leen‘s move out of OFCCP and into the Inspector General of Office of Personnel Management initiated with a hearing before the full committee of the Department of Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs. In an unexpected turn of events, Director Leen was nominated by President Donald Trump for the Inspector General position earlier this year.
While the confirmation process will need to play out, and the timing is still unknown, this is certainly the first step towards Director Leen’s exit from OFCCP.
There has been no formal announcement of a potential replacement or identification of who might assume an Acting Director role after Director Leen leaves the agency.
Stay tuned for future developments.
