The Office of Management and Budget turned to a veteran of federal budgeting to begin replacing its top two financial managers.
Mark Reger recently came over to OMB on detail from the Treasury Department to be the acting deputy controller.
Reger's detail helps fill the void left when controller Danny Werfel became the acting IRS Commissioner in May 2013, and his replacement Norman Dong, who had been deputy and then acting controller, moved over to head up the General Services Administration's Public Building Service in late March.
By bringing Reger over, OMB has a veteran of state and local government, and someone who has served in senior executive capacities in small and large agencies.
Reger has been Treasury's deputy assistant secretary accounting policy in the Office of the Fiscal Assistant Secretary since 2010 where he's helped lead the financial management standards effort. He is a member of the Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board and was CFO at the Office of Personnel Management for three years.
Reger also comes as OMB is putting some of the most important pieces in place to give its financial management shared services some life. OMB and Treasury's Office of Financial Innovation and Transformation are expected to name new federal shared service providers in the coming month.
