Gary Bass to leave OMB Watch

Gary Bass said he is stepping down as executive director of OMB Watch, the watchdog group he founded 28 years ago.

Bass will help find his replacement, a process that has already started, and then will become executive director of the Bauman Foundation no later than the fall of 2011, according to an open letter published on the OMB Watch website.

Bass and OMB Watch have advocated open government and accountability during five presidential administrations.

“I have preached the importance of change to make our government more accountable and responsive to public needs, placing a high priority on addressing inequities,” Bass wrote.
