220411 Robert Gordon Nomination HHS Senate


April 11, 2022


To the Members of the United States Senate:

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports the nomination of Robert Gordon to serve as Assistant Secretary for Financial Resources (ASFR) at the Department of Health and Human Services.  

Mr. Gordon is a well-qualified nominee with a long record of public service.  His experience includes serving as Acting Deputy at the Office of Management and Budget, Chief Financial Officer at the College Board and the Director of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. Mr. Gordon’s background is ideal, given the role of the ASFR in providing advice and guidance to the Secretary of Health and Human Services on all aspects of budget, financial management, grants and acquisition management.

Mr. Gordon’s nomination was approved in a bipartisan vote in the Senate Committee on Finance, and the Chamber urges the full Senate to confirm his nomination expeditiously.  We look forward to working with Mr. Gordon in this role.
