In A Time Of Shrinking Revenues Due To COVID-19, Bryan Creates 2 New Government Divisions

CHARLOTTE AMALIE — In complying with the governor’s management agenda and Executive Order No. 497-2020, Director Jenifer C. O’Neal said she is “pleased to announce the reorganization of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), including the formation of two NEW business Divisions to provide you with more efficient and effective services.”

OMB has consolidated units and shifted management and personnel to fill known gaps and lead new initiatives.

The most notable change is the creation of the Performance Management Division and the Budget Review Division. Each division, independently, will support the fiscal requests and needs of agencies while improving on GVI’s strategic direction and the efficient fiscal management of government resources.

Kevin McCurdy has been named the Associate Director of Budget Review and assigned to lead the Budget Review Division, a combination of the former Policy Management Unit and Budget Administration Unit.

Denelle Baptise has been named the senior performance manager and leads the Performance Management Division and the transition to performance/priority-based budgeting within GVI as mandated by 3 VIC Sections 22-27.

Additionally, Associate Director Hilarie Baker will lead our efforts to become compliant with the Special Conditions imposed by the United States Department of Education.

Baker will also assist the Department of Human Services and the Office of the Governor with the management of all of their federal grants.

These changes took effect on August 3.
