WASHINGTON, Sept. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Government Executive Media Group today announced that Shaun Donovan, Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), will deliver a keynote address at its Excellence in Government conference on November 17th in Washington, D.C. Secretary Donovan will address an audience comprised mostly of senior federal managers charged with driving performance and efficiency in their programs and agencies.
Shaun Donovan was sworn in on January 26, 2009 as the 15th United States Secretary for Housing and Urban Development. One of the federal government's largest agencies, HUD has a FY2012 budget of $47.9 billion and oversees efforts to create quality housing possible for every American. Secretary Donovan's top priorities include mortgage refinancing and rental assistance, providing resources to disaster-stricken areas, and creating more energy-efficient housing.
Under Secretary Donovan's leadership, HUD has helped stabilize the housing market and worked to keep responsible families in their homes. The agency has instituted reforms that have solidified the Federal Housing Administration's (FHA) financial position and protected the taxpayer against risk, while still preserving FHA's mission of providing responsible access to homeownership.

The November conference, titled "Performance & Management: The Efficiency Imperative," will feature top federal experts discussing the 2012 budget environment and the implications for federal operations.
