Program Analyst, Program Analysis Branch, NSF Budget Division
Beth Blue is an analyst in the Program Analysis Branch of the NSF Budget Division. She has worked on both the formulation and execution sides of federal budgeting for over twenty years, the majority of that time with NSF. She started her career on the program level and has steadily moved up to an agency-wide view, with a portfolio that includes the budgetary aspects of large facilities, research centers, and selected cross-cutting programs. Along the way she has happily worked with earnest program officers, pointed Office of Management and Budget (OMB) examiners, intrepid Hill staffers, and a few amusing political appointees. She also did a stint as an intern with the Government Accountability Office (GAO) in Seattle. Beth earned a MPA with an environmental policy focus from the University of Washington and a B.S. in Business from the University of Idaho. She was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Cameroun, Central Africa, training bookkeepers and boards of directors of village credit unions.
