OMB names insider to oversee g-to-g e-gov projects

The Office of Management and Budget this month filled its last vacant e-government portfolio manager post, naming Kamela White to head the government-to-government Quicksilver projects.

White has been a senior policy analyst in OMB's Information Policy and Technology Branch for three years, focusing on IT security policy and overseeing agencies' IT security compliance.

She takes over for Tony Frater, who left OMB in August to work for the lobbying firm Dutko Group of Washington.

White inherits projects that have seen mixed results. She will shepherd and Geospatial One-Stop into their final phases, while E-Vital and Disaster Management have made progress over the last year. Safecom is the furthest away from completion.

Before coming to OMB, White served on the White House Council for Year 2000 conversion.

White has a bachelor's in policy and management from Carnegie Mellon University and a master's in public policy from Georgetown University.
