Chief Performance Officer of the United States (CPO) is a position in the Office of Management and Budget (within the Executive Office of the President of the United States), first announced on January 7, 2009, by then President-elect Barack Obama. The post concentrates on the federal budget and government reform.

The office is currently vacant.

History[edit]

Obama selected Nancy Killefer to be the first CPO/Deputy OMB Director for Management, but before the Senate could vote on her confirmation, she withdrew her nomination, citing a "personal tax issue" as a likely distraction for the Obama administration.[1] Jeffrey Zients was nominated as CPO on April 18, 2009,[2] and confirmed by the Senate on June 19, 2009. He was succeeded by Beth Cobert.
