The National Archives and Records Administration has posted a Nov. 6 notice on USAJobs that it is looking for a new director of the Federal Register to be based in Washington with a top secret-level security clearance.
FedScoop’s Whitney Blair Wyckoff first reported Friday that the vacancy comes after former director Charley Barth left the Office of the Federal Register early this month to join Cummins as executive director of enterprise content management.
The report said Amy Bunk, director of NARA’s legal affairs and policy division, will serve as acting OFR director until the vacancy closes on Nov. 21.
“[The] new Director of the Federal Register will lead continued change, including greater integration with NARA’s other open government, research, and information sharing programs and information systems,” the agency said in the announcement.
The director’s duties include managing the legal publications program, coordinating the Federal Register administrative committee and the electoral college and establishing facilities to release laws and regulations during national emergencies.
NARA also indicated professional and technical qualifications and executive core qualifications in the areas of change management, people management, business acumen, a results-driven approach and partnership building.
