Although the leader of the personnel service at GSA would be a Senate-confirmed deputy administrator position, the director of the Office of Federal Workforce Policy would be a presidential appointee not subject to the confirmation process.

Unlike this proposed position at OMB, the director of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy is a position that is subject to Senate confirmation.
