On February 15, 2008 when the seventh Comptroller General of the United States, David M. Walker, announced that he was departing from his office before the end of his 15-year term to pursue an opportunity at The Peter G. Peterson Foundation he appointed Dodaro to replace him. Hence on March 13, 2008 Dodaro became the Acting Comptroller General.
On September 22, 2010, he was nominated by President Obama to serve as Comptroller General of the United States and head of the U.S. Government Accountability Office. His confirmation is pending before the Senate.
Brother Dodaro has added new lustre to the name of Kappa Delta Rho. We wish him much success in his new position in service to our great nation.
