Federal 100: Dominic Sale

Dominic Sale
Policy Analyst
Office of Management and Budget

Sale led the successful development of several high-priority systems last year, and he did it in record time.

First, Sale directed the testing and deployment of the initial version of Recovery.gov. His efforts resulted in the Web site going live the day President Barack Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act into law. Sale also helped develop the IT Dashboard in 60 days to give the public more insight into federal information technology spending, and he has been spearheading development of the latest version of USAspending.gov, which will make the site easier to use.

“All of [Sale's] projects were successfully completed in short time frames under tremendous pressure and external scrutiny,” said Michael Howell, OMB's deputy administrator of e-government and information technology.

Way to go Mr. Sale, I really like the Recovery.gov site, and have found it be invaluable. I used it to track down opportunities for my Chemicals Business.

Excellent work Dominic.

I have worked with Dominic and know how committed he is to his work and to the success of his projects. He works long hours including lots of nights and weekends. The guy deserves a promotion, if he is not already being considered for one.
