Former GSA procurement chief goes to the Hill again

Emily Murphy, a longtime player in federal contracting, moved back to Capitol Hill this week, becoming the senior counsel for the House Small Business Committee.

She started her new job April 4.

Murphy came to the committee from TerreStar National Services, a telecommunications company, where she was general counsel and vice president for government operations and security.

She’s been in government contracting since the late 1990s, when she worked for the small-business committee. She also worked at the Small Business Administration as associate administrator for government contracting, and she was the chief acquisition officer at the General Services Administration from 2005 to 2007.

In 2006, Murphy played an important role in bringing GSA and the Defense Department together in acquisition and contracting work through a memorandum of agreement, which made clear both departments' roles in the procurement process.

In her new position, she will be working on small-business contracting and workforce issues.
