Comptroller of the Currency Establishes Enterprise Governance Unit
WASHINGTON—Comptroller of the Currency John C. Dugan recently established the Enterprise Governance unit to support the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency's strategic planning, risk management, quality management, assurance testing, and business process improvement efforts.
"The establishment of this unit results from careful deliberation about how to structure agency strategic planning, quality management, and business process improvement activities so that they better align with our strategic objectives, and help fulfill our legal governance responsibilities," said Comptroller Dugan.
The Enterprise Governance unit will assist the Comptroller by administering governance activities to assure that:
- Strategic goals, objectives, and strategies are updated and progress is being measured;
- Quality management programs for all major agency business processes are tested; and
- OCC complies with applicable federal-sector governance laws, regulations, and standards.
In addition to the responsibilities mentioned above, the unit will serve as OCC's liaison to the Treasury Office of the Inspector General, Government Accountability Office, and Office of Management and Budget. The unit will report to OCC's Chief of Staff and Public Affairs John G. Walsh; Ron Lindhart will serve as its Director.
Mr. Lindhart is a national bank examiner with 33 years of OCC experience. He holds a Master's in Regulatory Policy from the George Washington University and a Bachelor's of Business Administration in Finance from Boise State University. He is also a graduate of the American Bankers Association Stonier Graduate School of Banking and the Federal Executive Institute.
