Senate Committee Approves Key Nomination, Ranking Member Urges Swift Action by Full Senate
WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Tom Carper (D-Del.), the top Democrat on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, released the following statement after a business meeting in which the committee unanimously approved the nomination of Andrew Mayock to serve as Deputy Director for Management at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The nomination will now go to the full Senate for consideration.
“I am pleased that our committee has moved to approve Andrew Mayock to serve as Deputy Director for Management at the Office of Management and Budget. The office, and particularly the position Mr. Mayock has been nominated to fill, plays an important role in helping agencies tackle challenges such as the upcoming Presidential transition, improper payments of over $100 billion per year, real property management, information technology management, and improving performance across government to name a few. With his previous experience at OMB and background in federal budgeting, Mr. Mayock is not only well-qualified to serve in this role, but, I believe, he will bring a unique and valuable perspective to this position. Given his clear qualifications and the critical role this position plays in the successful transition to the next administration, I urge the full Senate to take up and confirm Mr. Mayock’s nomination before we leave town for the upcoming recess.”
