Mark Sandy Wiki
Mark Sandy was born in 1964 and from the USA. He was the Deputy Associate Director for National Security Programs and acting director of the Office of Management and Budget from January 20 to February 16, 2017.
Mark Sandy will become the first OMB official to meet with investigators after others have refused. CNN reported that he is senior enough that he led the agency as acting director in the early weeks of the Trump administration before political appointees could be put in place. He previously worked under both Republican and Democrat administrations.
“He’s a longstanding public servant with an excellent reputation,” said Sam Berger, a high-ranking OMB political appointee from the Obama administration who worked with Sandy.
Sandy testified that he raised questions to the OMB general counsel about whether the move violated the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974, the source said. He would not discuss what the OMB general counsel said because of concerns it could violate privilege.
On Saturday, Democrats wanted to learn more from Sandy about how the process of disbursing military aid normally works and why suddenly this process was different.
