GAO has new chief procurement lawyer

The Government Accountability Office named Michael Golden as the new chief of its general counsel's Procurement Law Office.

As managing associate general counsel, Golden will head the division that hears protests of contract awards, generally from losing bidders who are dissatisfied with a particular procurement process.

Golden replaces Daniel Gordon, who was promoted to be GAO's deputy general counsel earlier this year.

Golden has served in GAO's general counsel office since 1978. Prior to this appointment, he served as assistant general counsel for almost 20 years.

He received his undergraduate degree from Cornell University and his law degree from Hofstra University.
