US Marshals Service
Ed Dolan - Comptroller and Chief Financial Officer
When Ed Dolan started at the Justice Department his first assignment involved a yellow pad and an adding machine with tape rolling down to the floor. Now, those same processes can be done in a blink of an eye. But finding ways to keep up with technology, from a financial point of view, was not easy. Dolan says there was an understanding early on that the Marshals Service could not go it alone. And he says despite being able to work within the Justice Department framework, the task is not going to get any easier, putting a premium on resource management. He also talks about how the Marshals Service was able to take on and overcome personnel management issues that threatened the agency's financial footing when he first came to the job.
