Mick Mulvaney, Director of the Office of Management & Budget (OMB)
Mick Mulvaney
John Michael "Mick" Mulvaney was nominated as OMB director by President Donald Trump in December 2016 and confirmed by the United States Senate on February 16, 2017. He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2011 and was the first Republican since 1883 to represent South Carolina's 5th congressional district where he served until his confirmation as OMB director in 2017. He had served in the South Carolina General Assembly from 2007–2011, first in the State House of Representatives and then the State Senate.

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is the largest office within the Executive Office of the President of the United States (EOP). OMB’s most prominent function is to produce the President’s Budget, but OMB also measures the quality of agency programs, policies, and procedures to see if they comply with the president’s policies and coordinates inter-agency policy initiatives. The OMB Director reports to the President (Donald Trump), Vice President (Mike Pence) and the White House Chief of Staff (Reince Priebus).

OMB prepares the President’s budget proposal to Congress and supervises the administration of the executive branch agencies. OMB has control over the budgetary approval process of all cabinets.

OMB evaluates the effectiveness of agency programs, policies, and procedures, assesses competing funding demands among agencies, and sets funding priorities. OMB ensures that agency reports, rules, testimony, and proposed legislation are consistent with the president’s budget and with administration policies. OMB also oversees and coordinates the administration’s procurement, financial management, information, and regulatory policies. In each of these areas, OMB’s role is to help improve administrative management, to develop better performance measures and coordinating mechanisms, and to reduce any unnecessary burdens on the public.
