Haley Van Dyck is leaving the Office of Management and Budget's E-Government and IT office after almost three years.

Sources confirmed that Van Dyck, whose official title is an e-government policy analyst, will leave at the end of August. Sources say her future plans still are unclear as is who would replace her.

Van Dyck came to OMB in February 2012 after spending three years working in other parts of government.

While at OMB, Van Dyck ran the innovation portfolio, working on everything from the Digital Government Strategy to the President Innovation Fellows program to open data and other governmentwide innovation programs, such as 18F at the General Services Administration.

Prior to her time at OMB, Van Dyck worked at the Federal Communications Commission for 2 1/2 years and served an 8-month detail at the U.S. Agency for International Development.

At the FCC, Van Dyck worked on the agency's customer-service approach and a new user-friendly website.

At USAID, Van Dyck helped the agency use social media and new technologies to solve problems. She led the launch of an international communications campaign to raise awareness about famine in Africa.

Van Dyck has been a key member of federal Chief Information Officer Steve Van Roekel's staff throughout her career in government, working with him at the FCC, following him to USAID and then to OMB. Sources say she is not following him to her next job this time.
