Kenneth Oscar named interim chief of federal procurement policy office

Kenneth Oscar will leave job at Army.

A Pentagon procurement official will take the reins of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy, at least as acting administrator for the remainder of the Clinton presidency.

The White House has tapped Kenneth J. Oscar, deputy assistant secretary of procurement for the Army, to be acting administrator of the Office of Management and Budget organization. He replaces Deidre A. Lee, who left the post this spring to become procurement director at the Defense Department.

An OMB spokesman said it is not clear whether President Clinton will formally nominate Oscar to the OFPP post, which would then require Senate confirmation, or whether Oscar would instead serve as acting OFPP administrator until Clinton leaves office.

Oscar has been with the Army since June 1995. From May 1997 to June 1998, he was acting assistant secretary for research, development and acquisition. During Operation Desert Storm, he was deputy commander for procurement and readiness for the Army's Tank-Automotive Command.
