PRLog - Feb. 26, 2013 - MCLEAN, Va. -- LMI President and CEO Nelson M. Ford recently served as a guest lecturer at the Naval Postgraduate School to share his expertise on federal budgeting with students there. Ford led students from the Graduate School of Business and Public Policy’s Defense Budget and Financial Management Policy class in a two-day classroom exercise geared toward providing broad fiscal context to the budget process, especially with looming cuts to available resources.

Ford, who was Under Secretary of the Army from 2007 to 2009, presented students with an online budget simulator by the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, and tasked students with proposing how to reduce the national debt to 60 percent of the Gross Domestic Product by 2021. Students used the simulation to consider a host of spending categories, including defense, health care, social security and tax expenditures.

Ford’s experience in the Army included extensive work in the financial management of the organization. Prior to serving as Under Secretary, he served as Assistant Secretary of the Army for Financial Management and Comptroller from 2006 to 2007 and Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army for Financial Management and Comptroller from 2005 to 2006. From 2002 through 2004, Ford was Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health Budgets and Financial Policy in the Department of Defense.
