VanRoekel to Lead OMB's Management Team
May 21, 2013
Steven VanRoekel will lead the Office of Management and Budget’s management team, following the departure of OMB’s No. 2 official this month.
“[OMB] Director [Sylvia] Burwell has asked U.S. Chief Information Officer Steve VanRoekel to lead OMB’s management team on an interim basis until a new deputy director for management is confirmed,” OMB spokeswoman Ari Isaacman Astles confirmed in an email. VanRoekel, however, will continue serving as federal CIO and administrator of the Office of E-Government and Information Technology.
VanRoekel was named federal CIO in 2011 and has served as managing director of the Federal Communications Commission and in an executive director position at the U.S. Agency for International Development. He will fill in for Jeff Zients, who stepped down as OMB’s deputy director for management on May 1, about a week after the Senate confirmed Burwell as OMB director.
