Peter Orszag says goodbye in letter

By Rachel Weiner

Outgoing OMB Director Peter Orszag steps down today. In a letter, he says goodbye to the staff. Jeff Zients will serve as acting director until Jack Lew is confirmed.

As you know my last day in the Administration is today. It has been an honor and privilege to serve with you all.
As I said at the Awards ceremony last week, everything we do at OMB is a group effort. All the success we have seen these past 18 months in shepherding some of the most significant legislative initiatives in generations derives from the work that we all have done together. For that, I thank you.
Before you read about it in the press, I also wanted to let you know about the transition here at OMB. Until Jack Lew is confirmed as OMB Director, Jeff Zients will serve as Acting Director. Jeff Liebman has been planning to resume his teaching and research at Harvard and rejoin his family already back in Massachusetts. Rob Nabors will therefore return to OMB to take Jeff’s place as Acting Deputy Director.
Thanks again for all your hard work this past year and a half, and I look forward to following your accomplishments in the months and years to come.
