Christine Fox, the director of DoD’s Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation office (CAPE), is leaving the Pentagon at the end of June, a defense official tells Intercepts.

Fox’s departure will follow the completion of the Strategic Choices and Management Review (SCMR), in which she plays a key role. The review will present options for areas to trim the Pentagon budget in the coming years.

“Ms. Fox timed her departure to ensure that her work on the SCMR was completed,” the defense official said.

Fox has led CAPE since 2009. Before that, she was the president of the Center for Naval Analyses.

A successor has not been nominated.
