FCW: Lawmakers hear from Trump’s pick to lead the Census Bureau

“If confirmed, Dillingham will be the first permanent director of the bureau since John Thompson retired in June 2017. He will take over after the bureau’s 2018 end-to-end test, the final in-field test of systems and operations before the decennial.  Dillingham has previous experience at statistics-focused agencies, including the Bureau of Justice Statistics and the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. He was serving in the post of director of the Peace Corps Office of Strategic Information, Research, and Planning when he was nominated for the top Census job in July.”

“The integration of the IT systems very important,” Dillingham said at an Oct. 3 hearing of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee. He added that there is “general agreement the 44 systems are being tested as part of the end-to-end test in Rhode Island performed very well.”

“The bureau has awarded all of its major IT contracts for the 2020 population count, except for an award for its printing and mailing contract, after the initial $61 million contract was botched by the Government Publishing Office.” Read the full article here.
