The Senate voted today 54-38 to approve the nomination of Dale Cabaniss as Director of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) for a four-year term.

Her Senate confirmation follows approval by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee in May. Cabaniss led the Federal Labor Relations Authority from 2001 to 2008. She also was Republican Staff Director for the Senate Appropriations Committee’s Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government.

Margaret Weichert is currently serving as both Acting Director at OPM, and Deputy Director at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). She will continue in the latter position.
