ODNI gets new associate director, CFO

Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell has appointed Janice Lambert as associate director of national intelligence and chief financial officer. 


Lambert’s experience in performance budgeting helped set her apart, ODNI officials said. Performance budgeting shifts the focus of program resource allocation from standard expense items, such as salaries and travel, to achievement of overall program goals.


Since March 2005, Lambert has been CFO at the Internal Revenue Service, where she was responsible for the custodial accounting of more than $2 trillion in taxpayer receipts and the agency’s $10.5 billion annual operating budget. Furthermore, she was the principal adviser to the IRS commissioner on financial management and systems, strategic planning, performance measurement, budget formulation and execution, and internal controls. 


Before joining the IRS, Lambert worked as the director of budget at the Treasury Department. She led the implementation of the department’s first integrated budget effort, which consolidated the budget and annual performance plans of Treasury’s bureaus.


Earlier in her career, she was chief of budget and administration at the Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force at the Justice Department. She has also worked as a budget analyst for two local government agencies in Virginia.
