Andy Feldman is the Special Advisor for Intergovernmental Performance Management at OMB where he focuses on helping agencies improve results and cost-effectiveness through evidence-based policy (learning and doing what works) and innovation (experimentation and learning).
His previous roles include being one of the top three appointed leaders at Wisconsin’s Department of Workforce Development, an agency of 1,600; a Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle; a Staff Economist at the White House Council of Economic Advisors in the Clinton Administration; and Special Assistant to the President at MDRC, the social policy research organization.
He has taught graduate-level public management courses at University of Wisconsin-Madison, the University of Singapore and Harvard University. His 2011 book, What Works in Work-First Welfare (Upjohn Institute Press) examines why some welfare-to-work programs in New York City are more effective than others at helping people get and keep jobs.
