Cummings Issues Statement on Nomination of Beth Cobert As OPM Director

 

Washington, DC (Nov. 10, 2015 ) – Today, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, issued the following statement in response to President Obama’s nomination of Acting Director Beth Cobert as Director of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM):

“Acting Director Colbert has done a great job in her efforts to improve OPM, and I am confident that she is the right person to lead the agency.  While she’s only been in this position for just a few months, she has been steadfast and resolute in her efforts to strengthen the agency’s cybersecurity efforts and keep Congress informed on these improvements.   She has also instituted changes to improve the agency’s cooperation and communication with the Inspector General and to address his specific concerns. OPM performs critical duties for our nation, including conducting background investigations, so it is critical that Acting Director Colbert rebuild the public’s trust in this agency.”
