At his 200th day in office, President Biden has 389 nominations that require Senate confirmation. That still leaves a number of important positions, including director for the Office of Management and Budget, vacant.

  • Max Stier, president and chief executive officer of the Partnership for Public Service, said the United States must aggressively reduce the number of Senate-confirmed positions (there are about 1,200); he said this happened in 2011 but not by enough.
  • Stier said leaders in acting roles are usually extremely capable but limited in their ability to take on bigger, more long-term challenges.
  • Stier said President Biden’s nominations are on par with past presidents while confirmations are fewer, but the problem is that the system is not working.
