WASHINGTON: U.S. President George W Bush is intending to nominate Indian American Ashok G Kaveeshwar as the administrator of the Research and Innovative Technology Administration at the Department of Transportation, the White House has announced.

Kaveeshwar, an Ujjain University graduate, currently serving as President of Orange Technologies, Inc, a small business that provides information technology to government and commercial customers, lives in Maryland.

For any such appointment, there are four stages. First the President announces intent to nominate. Then comes the nomination. After that it goes before the relevant committee of Congress. The Committee recommends the candidate to the full Senate for approval and after Senate approval comes the swearing-in and induction into office.

Kaveeshwar previously served as Senior Vice President of Raytheon Technical Services Company. Earlier in his career, he was President and CEO of Hughes STX Corporation, a subsidiary of Hughes Electronics Corporation.

He received his PhD from the State University of New York at Buffalo.
