Appointing New Commissioner

Daniel Werfel is expected to be named by President Obama to replace Acting Commissioner Steven T. Miller, according to various news outlets. Miller tendered his resignation to President Obama a few days ago.

Background of the expected Acting Commissioner

Mr. Werfel was previously named Controller of the Office of Federal Financial Management of the Office of Management and Budget by President Obama in 2009. Before his appointment to this position, he had served in a few different roles at the Office of Management and Budget—including Deputy Controller, Chief of the Financial Integrity and Analysis Branch; budget examiner in the education branch of the office, and as a policy analyst in the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.

Before entering the Office of Management and Budget, Mr. Werful practiced law. At one time, he worked as a trial attorney in Civil Rights Division in the Department of Justice.

Werful has a history of bipartisanship, as he worked in the OMB during the Bush Administration, pushing for support on both sides of the aisle.
