Lee fills in as OMB deputy director

Deidre A. Lee, Office of Federal Procurement Policy administrator, has been named
acting deputy director for management at the Office of Management and Budget.


Lee takes over for G. Edward DeSeve, who left the post at the end of last month. She
will fill both jobs as the Clinton administration seeks a candidate for the deputy
director post, OMB spokeswoman Linda Richie said.


DeSeve had been the acting deputy director for management since March 1998, when
President Clinton nominated him to replace John A. Koskinen. The Senate, however, never
confirmed him. DeSeve left the post on March 31 to become a partner at KPMG Peat Marwick
of New York.


In the interim role, Lee heads the President’s Management Council, the Chief
Information Officers Council and the Chief Financial Officers Council.


She must also oversee agency compliance with management reforms and year 2000 work.


The Senate confirmed Lee as OFPP administrator in July. Previously she was NASA’s
associate administrator for procurement.
