OMB appoints manager to boost e-gov

The Office of Management and Budget appointed Andrew Ciafardini to be its government-to-citizen e-government portfolio manager, the agency announced today. He will direct strategies for improving the public’s access to government information using the latest available technology.

Ciafardini will work with agencies to make government more efficient by putting more information online. In addition, he will coordinate activities related to the SmartBuy initiative, which uses the government’s buying power to ensure best prices.

Improving agencies’ program delivery to save taxpayer dollars is part of the President’s Management Agenda. OMB’s Office of E-Government and Information Technology coordinates many of the initiatives.

Most recently, Ciafardini worked at the State Department, where he managed the visits of high-level foreign dignitaries to the United States for meetings with the president, vice president and secretary of state.

Before that, he worked at the White House as deputy director of scheduling for research and was responsible for the development of an electronic presidential scheduling system.

Ciafardini is a native of Cincinnati and a graduate of George Mason University in Fairfax, Va., where he earned a degree in management.
