WASHINGTON, DC —Filipino American Jason Benjamin Alinea Tengco has been named White House Liaison for the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, among several political appointees to the office that the Biden-Harris Administration announced.

The appointees will work alongside OPM civil servants in support of the Biden Administration’s declared aim of building a federal work force that reflects the diversity of the United States.

Tengco recently served as the Chief of Staff for the Biden-Harris campaign’s Coalitions Department and then was the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Outreach Lead on the transition team. Before that, he served as Executive Director of the National Federation of Filipino American Associations, National AAPI Outreach Director for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, and Deputy Director of the White House Initiative on AAPIs. Jason has a B.A. in Political Science from UCLA and a Master’s in Public Affairs from UC Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy.

“President Biden made a promise to the American people that he would assemble diverse and talented teams that look like America, and today he continues to fulfill that promise,” said Chris Canning, incoming Chief of Staff. “We are looking forward to joining the hard working and committed civil servants at OPM to support and empower the federal workforce.” OPM’s team of political appointees reflects the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to diversity, with more than 85% of OPM First Week appointees identifying as people of color, women, or LGBTQ.
