OMB's Director, Deputy Directors, Program Associate Directors, and the heads of various staff offices reside on the second floor of the Old Executive Office Building (or colloquially the "second floor" or "grey building").
The Director, appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate, serves as a member of the President's cabinet and as the Administration's spokesperson for the Federal Budget. The Director is responsible for the overall direction of the Federal Government's budgetary, regulatory, procurement, financial, and management activities. (The Director also is the primary negotiator and contact between the agencies and the President on budgetary matters.)
(In addition to a personal or confidential assistant the Director's office often includes one or more assistants with roles ranging from office manager to policy advisor and/or the lead on specific issues for OMB.)
The Deputy Director (DD) is appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. The DD substitutes for the Director when he or she is not available and usually is responsible for advising the Director on all budgetary issues.
The Deputy Director for Management (DDM) is appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. The DDM is responsible for government-wide management issues and other duties as assigned by the Director. The DDM serves as the chairperson for the President's Management Council, the President's Council on Management and Integrity and the Chief Financial Officers Council. The following OMB statutory offices also report directly to the DDM: Office of Federal Financial Management (OFFM), Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP), and Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA).
