OMB Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs chief Graham steps down

John Graham, administrator of the Office of Management and Budget's Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, will leave the agency in February 2006, an OMB spokesman confirmed. The spokesman said the process to replace Graham will start before he departs.

Graham, who joined OMB in 2001, will be moving to California as dean of the Rand Corp.'s Pardee RAND Graduate School in Alameda.

Prior to joining OMB, Graham founded and led the Harvard Center for Risk Analysis from 1990 through 2001.

'John has brought to OMB a keen intellect rooted in a rigorous commitment to science,' OMB director Joshua Bolten said.
