Former Rangers company secretary Ogilvie was a beneficiary of an Employee Benefit Trust during his time at the Ibrox club.
And he has removed himself from any of the governing body's dealings with the Glasgow giants since back in March.
Many critics felt his position was untenable due to his involvement with EBTs and called for him to resign.
But Ogilvie is now able to play a full part in the SFA's activities after the First Tier Tax Tribunal found in favour of Rangers last month.
And he admitted he will seek re-election next year because he is keen to play a more complete role driving Scottish football forward.
He said: "I tried to be totally up front from day one. I tried to highlight my involvement (with EBTs). But there was always a cloud. It has been challenging.
"It was there every week, every time a cup draw was made. I am pleased to move on.
"I know a lot of people felt that I should have stood down, but I intend to stand again. You have to put forward your nomination in February and then it is a democratic process.
"If the clubs don't want me then fine. I'll have no problem standing aside."
Ogilvie added: "It's not so much relief, I just want to get on with the job and move forward with the priorities that are on the table now football-wise.
"I'd like to see us focusing on these and moving forward. The last six months have been hard for many people in many areas of the game."
Meanwhile, Ogilvie has expressed reservations about a new league structure being put in place by the SFL and SPL next season.
He remarked: "The SFA aren't the ones who can vote this through. But I believe we have a role to play in trying to make it happen. "It's important we get it right. It's not just about the number of teams in the league. I firmly believe there are issues they need to look at.
"If you are bringing in any change then I think you start the season knowing what you are playing for. That's my personal opinion."
