Senate confirms Everson for OMB post

The Senate yesterday unanimously confirmed Mark W. Everson as the Office of Management and Budget's deputy director for management.

Everson replaces Sean O'Keefe, who left OMB to become NASA administrator in November.

President Bush nominated Everson in May. The Senate approved his nomination by voice vote.

As deputy director for management, Everson oversees agency progress toward the President's Management Agenda and publishes a report on their progress every six months. He also will work on the transition team for the proposed Homeland Security Department.

Before being nominated to OMB, Everson served as controller of the Federal Financial Management Office, a position he held for six months. He worked for SC International Services Inc. of Dallas as group vice president for finance before joining the Bush administration. He also served in the Reagan administration for six years, including three as the special assistant to attorney general Edwin Meese.

Everson earned a bachelor's degree in history from Yale University and a master's in accounting from New York University.
