OMB's Womer takes job in North Carolina government

Jonathan Womer, an Office of Management and Budget policy analyst who worked mainly on IT issues, has taken a position as an assistant state budget officer for IT with North Carolina.

Womer's last day was Tuesday, and he will begin his new position July 12.

In his new position, he will serve as a liaison between state agencies and the IT Services Office, and assist departments with hardware and software purchases. He also will coordinate with and assist the IT office with technology management implementation, review and conduct cost-benefit analyses and make IT budget recommendations.

During his almost five years at OMB, Womer ran the government-to-citizen Quicksilver project portfolio and dealt with e-authentication and Government Paperwork Elimination Act issues in OMB's Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. He helped guide successful projects such as the Labor Department's and the IRS' Free File e-government initiatives through the first year of development.

Most recently, Womer led the Interagency Committee on Government Information. The committee, established by the E-Government Act of 2002, is drafting recommendations and collecting best practices on how to access, disseminate and retain federal information. The committee made Web site recommendations to OMB earlier this month.

Womer earned a bachelor's degree from Duke University and two master's degrees from the University of Michigan.
