New names, new roles on Senate oversight panel Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.), chairman of the Homeland Security and Gov- ernmental Affairs Committee, has announced some new subcommittee assignments: • Financial and Contracting Oversight Subcommittee (formerly Ad Hoc Subcommittee on Contracting Over- sight) --- Chairwoman Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), ranking member Ron John- son (R-Wis.). • Permanent Subcommittee on Inves- tigations, which will study how ef - ciently the government operates and complies with regulations --- Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich.), ranking member John McCain (R-Ariz.). • Ef ciency and Effectiveness of Feder- al Programs and the Federal Workforce Subcommittee --- Chairman Jon Tester (D-Mont.), ranking member Rob Port- man (R-Ohio). • Emergency Management, Intergov- ernmental Affairs and the District of Columbia Subcommittee: Chairman Mark Begich (D-Alaska), ranking mem- ber Rand Paul (R-Ky.). --- Matthew Weigelt Humor over budget in short supply At the Association of Government Accountants' National Leadership Conference, Of ce of Management and Budget Controller Danny Werfel explained to the audience why he did not have a funny anec- dote, which is his usual way of kicking off an AGA keynote speech. "I said to Steve [Van- Roekel], It's nally hap- pened: I'm so busy I didn't even have time to plan for an opening joke,'" Werfel said. "We've gotten to that point at OMB. You can imagine what's going on behind the scenes. " Despite his preoccupation with the future of federal IT systems and nancial management, Werfel was not entirely humorless. When AGA Executive Director Relmond Van Daniker urged conference attendees to take home several of the leftover AGA bags, Werfel seized the opportu- nity to nally make a joke and, like a pro, tie it back to his earlier speech. "Maybe next time you should lower your purchasing on bags, OK? Or use strategic sourcing!" Werfel mock-scolded. --- Camille Tuutti Does IBM's Kamensky have a future in impressions? Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) paid a surprise visit to a House Oversight and Government Reform Commit- tee hearing in February --- or at least that's what it sounded like. The witness was actually John Kamensky, senior fellow at the IBM Center for the Busi- ness of Government. As Kamensky discussed ways to cut down on waste in government, Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) stopped him. "Has anyone ever told you [that] if you close your eyes, you sound exactly like Harry Reid?" Connolly asked. He added quickly, with a glance toward committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.): "And that's a compliment from this side of the aisle.
