Linda Springer has announced her resignation as director of the Office of Personnel Management effective Aug. 13, an OPM spokesman said today. Springer told Bush administration officials July 15 of her plans to leave OPM to take a position in the private sector.
OPM Deputy Director Howard Weizmann will serve as acting director, the spokesman said.
Springer became OPM director in June 2005 after being comptroller in the Office of Management and Budget’s Office of Federal Financial Management. While in that position, she reduced the turnaround time for agencies to report their year-end financial results from five months to 45 days, OPM said.
She is a principal of the government’s Joint Financial Management Improvement Program and was named a National Academy of Public Administration Fellow in 2006.
