Better than the Heisman

Tonight, the Senate confirmed Danny Werfel as Controller, Office of Federal Financial Management (OFFM). This is great news for OMB, as Danny brings broad experience and financial acumen to the table. His skills will be tested, as there are serious challenges facing the federal government to improve transparency and drive better results for the American people.
I’ve written before
about Danny’s essential role in implementing the President’s ambitious agenda through the transition as Acting Controller, and particularly his work in implementing — with unprecedented accountability and openness — the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
I look forward to his leadership in furthering President’s agenda and in our work going forward; he is, as he has been, vital to what we do.
I thank his wife, Beth, and their children, Sean and Molly, for sharing Danny with us. I join everyone at OMB in congratulating Danny and his family on his confirmation.
P.S. A point of clarification: OMB’s Danny Werfel is not to be confused with Danny Wuerffel, who won the 1996 Heisman trophy as quarterback at the University of Florida, last seen in Washington as a member of the ‘Skins in 2002.
