The Office of Personnel Management has appointed James Onusko and Christy Wilder to respectively serve as team leader and deputy manager of an interagency effort to establish a National Background Investigations Bureau, Federal News Radio reported Friday.
Jason Miller writes Onusko and Wilder will oversee the transition of functions, personnel and infrastructure from OPM’s Federal Investigative Services organization to NBIB.
Onusko previously served as executive director of personnel security and identity management at the Department of Veterans Affairs and director of the State Department‘s Office of Personnel Security and Suitability.
The report said he oversaw employee and contractor security clearance processes at VA and State in his prior roles.
Wilder most recently worked for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and supported the agency’s legislative affairs related to counterintelligence and security, Federal Times’ Aaron Boyd reports.
She came to ODNI after a five-year stint at OPM’s FIS organization, according to the publication.
