Senate committee approves Zients nomination


The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee voted unanimously Monday to approve the nomination of Jeffrey Zients as the deputy director for management at the Office of Management and Budget.

If confirmed, Zients would also serve as the government’s first chief performance officer, tasked with improving agency operations and preparing the federal government for a wave of employees eligible for retirement in the coming years.

Zients’ nomination now goes to the full Senate for consideration. The vote has not yet been scheduled.
