The Office of Management and Budget's Stacie Boyd has left to join the National Science Foundation, a government official confirmed.
At NSF, Boyd will be a program analyst in the Office of Information Resource Management, Division of Information Systems. Her first day was Monday.
In her new position, she will be working on NSF's e-government activities, in particular the governmentwide grants management initiatives, and supporting NSF's information system management activities.
Boyd, who was in her second stint with OMB, became the government-to-government and Grants Line of Business portfolio manager in January 2005. Her last day was Nov. 24.
She will be replaced temporarily by Tim Young, OMB's associate administrator for e-government and IT.
While at OMB, she shepherded the Grants LOB through the evaluation process and decision to choose three consortium providers. While the initiative has been marred by debate over how best to move forward, Boyd helped get the consortium approach moving over the past year.
Boyd also worked to ensure collaboration among federal, state and local governments to deliver services to citizens in the government-to-government portfolio. The e-government projects she oversaw included Disaster Management, E-Vital, Geospatial One-Stop, Grants.gov and Project Safecom.
Before coming to OMB, Boyd was a budget analyst for the Energy Department. Boyd has a bachelor's degree in economics and a master's of business administration from West Virginia University.
In other news, NSF's chief computer and information science and engineering chief is moving to the private sector. Peter Freeman will become director of the Washington Advisory Group LLC of Washington in January. Washington Advisory Group provides consulting to government, nonprofits, universities and the private sector on R&D projects.
Freeman has been with NSF since 2002, where he led the IT research program. He also oversaw the reorganization of the computer and information science and engineering directorate and led the elevation of cyberinfrastructure to a major activity across the agency.
