Dana Webb
Deputy Director

With over 27 years public-service experience, Dana Webb has a well-deserved reputation within Oklahoma state government as an innovative and knowledgeable state leader. Webb currently serves as OMES' deputy director and oversees the essential services provided by several OMES divisions, including the state’s procurement, health insurance and capital assets management offices.

Most recently, Webb has been a key leader in the implementation of a statewide, cloud-based human capital management solution, Workday@OK, that will bring all Oklahoma state agencies onto a central platform for the first time in state history. This two-year initiative, that involved extensive collaboration from all state agencies, will revolutionize the state’s HR systems and ultimately lead to better services for both state agencies and Oklahoma citizens.

Additionally, Webb led the initiative to modernize Oklahoma state government’s physical footprint through the implementation of more collaborative workspaces and a standardized telework model. This project has led to annual savings of over $400,000 for OMES alone and has established a new example recognized by the state legislature for other agencies to follow.

Webb earned her Bachelor of Business Administration from Central State University. In her free time, she enjoys spoiling her grandchildren, cooking and spending time with her family, and is an active member of Choctaw Road Baptist Church in Choctaw, Okla.
