Focusing on six words: Helping government do its job better

DorobekInsider: OMB hires performance guru Shelley Metzenbaum

with one comment

I was out yesterday so I wasn’t able to highlight this — I had heard it was in the works awhile ago — but OMB chief performance officer Jeffrey Zients yesterday announced that Shelley Metzenbaum has joined the Obama administration.

From Federal News Radio’s Jason Miller’s story yesterday:

He announced at the hearing that Shelley Metzenbaum would be joining OMB to help oversee the performance management agenda. Metzenbaum, who will be OMB’s associate director for performance and personnel management, is a former Clinton administration appointee with the Environmental Protection Agency, an author of several performance management books and the founder the Collins Center for Public Management at the University of Massachusetts.

Read the full story here.

Metzenbaum has been studying government performance for some time. Earlier this year, Metzenbaum was on Federal News Radio 1500 AM’s Daily Debrief with Chris Dorobek and Amy Morris talking about her new report, Performance Management Recommendations for the New Administration [PDF]. See her slides from a presentation on the report that she gave to OMB Watch. [PDF]

Metzenbaum is the daughter of the late Sen. Howard Metzenbaum and she is married to Harvard Kennedy School Professor Steve Kelman, the former administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy during the Clinton administration.
