Springer is new OMB controller

The Senate this week confirmed Linda M. Springer as the new controller of the Office of Management and Budget.

She moves into a position that has been vacant since Mark Everson became deputy director for management. Her job is strengthening executive branch financial management under the President's Management Agenda.

Before coming to OMB, Springer was a senior vice president and controller for Provident Mutual Life Insurance Co., which was acquired by Nationwide Financial Services Inc. in 2001 and vice president and product manager at Penn Mutual Life Insurance Co. of Philadelphia.

'The corporate scandals of the past year have underscored the necessity of keeping books clean and financial information accurate,' Springer said. 'These are standards we should expect in government every bit as much as they are expected in the private sector.'
