Samuel Mok - Chief Financial Officer, Department of Labor
It's been five and a half years since Mr. Mok took the helm as the department's Chief Financial Officer, and now he says it is time to move on. Looking back, he says it has become clear that getting to green on the President's Management Agenda cannot be the end. It must remain only the means to the end. Mok says there is a danger that too many hard-working feds are getting caught up in meeting requirements and losing track of the big picture. He also says CFOs shouldn't limit their scope when it comes to looking for best practices, that there may be some good ideas overseas. And finally, Mok wonders if the need for so many CxOs is taking a toll on agencies and if the solution may actually be another CxO.
