OMB Director Sylvia Burwell received a letter from Sen. Tom Coburn earlier this month asking for the facts and figures on how agencies are spending acquisition funds in the fourth quarter.
The White House updates Circular A-123 to include a new appendix to address federal financial management systems. OMB expects the new regulations to let agencies focus on a smaller-scale, risk-based approach to improving financial systems.
Experts say Beth Cobert must take the Goldilocks approach to developing management priorities for the next three years. President Barack Obama nominated Cobert to be OMB's deputy director for management Wednesday. Performance management observers say she needs to bring energy and new ways of looking at old problems.
