Why question the DOE nominee about things he has no control over like the budget and how it is spent? Congress assigns the budget for DOE line by line. DOE has essentially no freedom in how the money is allocated.
Why push for more (and more) oversight when excessive, ineffective oversight is a key reason DOE overhead rates are not competitive?
How about some common sense in getting congress to pass a meaningful, considered budget with some specifc measures of success attached?
Let's address these problems at their source and not lay them at the feet of a political appointee.
