She will also be the principal adviser to Jacques S. Gansler, undersecretary of Defense for acquisition, technology and logistics, on weapons systems contracting. Lee will advise the Defense Acquisition Board on procurement issues, too.

Lee replaces Eleanor Spector, who retired from the post last month.

Prior to joining OFPP, Lee was the associate administrator for procurement at NASA. She is a career government employee who has held multiple procurement jobs, including some at DOD.

Most recently, she had been serving as the Office of Management and Budget's acting deputy director for management.
