Timothy McQuiggan’s bio was not immediately findable.  (because I originally misspelled his name – en, instead of an)  I did find him listed as representing the Boeing company on this combined government and industry policy advisory committee.  Considering all of the problems with revolving doors and improper relationships between some members of industry, particularly defense contractors, and those serving in oversight roles in the federal government I am thinking that giving industry such access to lobby and try to influence the policies and actions of oversight authorities  is not such a good idea.  It provides more opportunity for undue influence. 

I recall a couple of years ago posting some information about a former DSS employee who left his position in policy or oversite, having authority over Boeing’s  and other defense contracts  who suddenly left DSS and moved immediately to a very lucrative job at Boeing.  That individual created quite a bit of controversy, a number of problems, and as I understand it from someone in the company, was asked to leave or retire in order to avoid having the company prosecuted for some wrongdoing involving that individual.  This is an example of the huge problem revolving doors are between government, particularly oversight agencies and at least some defense contractors.  GFS

Update 10-13-10:   Tim McQuiggan, is apparently the director of Government Security for Boeing Defense, Space &. Security.   Interesting.
