OMB hires temporaries to help with management functions

The Bush administration is hiring temporary help to fill voids in management at the Office of Management and Budget.

Robert O'Neill, president of the National Academy of Public Administration, will be a temporary counselor to OMB Director Mitchell Daniels Jr., said Chris Brouwer, NAPA director of communications. He will also continue in his job as the academy's president.

O'Neill will advise Daniels on management functions in the absence of a deputy director for management. OMB also is awaiting confirmation of administrators for the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs and the Office of Federal Procurement Policy.

Deputy director Sean O'Keefe is overseeing the agency's management responsibilities.
