Student intern trainees
prepare information for use by the President, OMB officials, Congress, and the
public, and work closely with others in OMB and other Federal agencies, often
under short deadlines.
The ideal candidate would
be someone with a background or an interest in public administration, business
administration, and public policy. Students studying public administration, business
administration, or public policy with a particular focus on Federal management are
particularly encouraged to apply. Strong organizational skills,
communication (oral and written) skills, analytic ability, and dependability
are a must. The potential duration of the internship is 1-2 years.
The student will be
assigned to OMB's Performance Team and will be responsible for a combination of
professional, analytic, and administrative work. These responsibilities
include but are not limited to:
· Provide analysis and recommendations to
identify and overcome barriers to organizational performance improvement across
programs and agencies.
· Support OMB's collection and analysis of
information from agencies, including information related to agency performance
and risk management.
· Provide logistical support for the
management processes required by the GPRA Modernization Act, such as the annual
strategic reviews and quarterly reviews of priority goals.
· Coordinate assignments on behalf of the
Performance Team to ensure accuracy and consistency with Administration policy.
· Manage information flows within the
Performance Team, including overseeing the office's internal file management
systems, website, calendars, and other support systems.
· Support Performance Team operations and
other duties as assigned.
