OPM Has Replaced Its Embattled CFO Following Harassment Report

The Office of Personnel Management has replaced its chief financial officer, less than a week after a government watchdog concluded that he had used racial slurs, sexually harassed female employees and drank during work hours while employed at the Defense Department.

OPM’s website no longer lists Douglas Glenn as the agency’s CFO. Instead, Erica Roach has been quietly named acting CFO. Prior to this role, she served as deputy CFO and the director of systems planning and development.

The upheaval follows a report issued last week by the Defense Department inspector general which concluded that Glenn, a career member of the Senior Executive Service, frequently made sexually suggestive comments about female employees’ appearances during his tenure at the Pentagon. It also found that during a 2021 all-hands meeting, he suggested that people described in a 2013 speech from President Obama “might not have been racist” for locking their car doors as Obama past their vehicles, and later asked an Asian-American subordinate to described how she felt as an “Asian female in a department that considers China its biggest threat.”
