Werfel resigns from OMB

http://feedproxy.google.com

Danny Werfel, an influential player in efforts to improve federal financial management, and who also ran the IRS for much of last year, has resigned from his post as Office of Management and Budget controller and left federal service, an OMB spokesman confirmed.Werfel stepped down effective Dec. 31, Frank Benenati said in an email. His low-key departure was not announced at the time and President Obama has not yet nominated a replacement for the Senate-confirmed position. In the meantime, Deputy Controller Norman Dong is serving as interim controller. Werfel, a career federal employee who had been controller since October 2009, could not be reached for comment.Werfel was closely involved in the White House’s campaign to reduce improper federal payments and helped create the Treasury Department’s Office of Financial Innovation and Transformation, which seeks to move agencies toward more use of shared financial management services. Last May, Obama tapped him to temporarily lead the IRS after the previous acting commissioner left amid an uproar over an inspector general’s finding that the agency used “inappropriate criteria” for evaluating conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status.While Werfel had been expected to stay as acting IRS commissioner only through the end of the fiscal year in September, he served until last month, when John Koskinen was confirmed as the agency’s permanent head.Werfel, who regularly represented OMB at congressional hearings, also enjoyed cordial relationships with lawmakers of both parties.-Sean Reilly, FederalTimes.comREAD MORE...
