OMB's Tim Young

OMB's Tim Young

We are hearing that OMB’s Tim Young has announced that his last day at the Office of Management and Budget will be Friday, Nov. 21. The unanswered question: Where is he going?

Young has been at OMB for some seven years and is credited with reorganizing OMB’s e-government and information technology. In December, Young was promoted to be deputy director. At the same time, OMB shifted the deputy director post to a career position as part of an over all reorganization of OMB’s IT management. Then, earlier this year, he was replaced by Michael Howell, who became the senior career IT executive.

It has been widely known that Young was looking for a private sector post and friends report that he has been pondering several good offers. The question at this point is… which one did he choose.
