GSA announces changes in FAS leadership

Ed O’Hare will become an assistant commissioner in General Services Administration’s Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) in May and Elizabeth DelNegro will become the acting FAS chief information officer in his stead, agency officials said today.

O’Hare is set to leave his FAS CIO position, to become the assistant FAS commissioner for Integrated Technology Services (ITS). DelNegro is currently FAS’ acting assistant commissioner for the Office of Strategic Business Planning and Process Improvement.

As DelNegro shifts, Amanda Fredriksen, deputy assistant commissioner for the Office of General Supplies and Services, will take over for DelNegro as the acting assistant commissioner, GSA said.

“Ed, Liz and Amanda all have extensive GSA and FAS knowledge and expertise,” said FAS Commissioner Jim Williams. “I am confident of their abilities to successfully lead and manage these organizations.”

In his new position, O’Hare will be responsible for the $17 billion information technology Schedule 70 program, the IT governmentwide acquisition contracts program (GWAC), the Networx and Alliant contracts, and the Veterans Technology Services GWAC.

The shift in FAS’ leadership comes as John Johnson, the current assistant FAS commissioner for ITS, retires May 2. He made his announcement March 30.

O’Hare, DelNegro and Fredriksen have a long history with GSA and in particular the defunct Federal Supply Service. In the last several years, GSA has worked to combine FSS and the Federal Technology Service as it created FAS.

Larry Allen, president of the Coalition for Government Procurement, said the three have a long track record of good management and are likely to further push the remnants of FTS and FSS together. He expects they will try to centralize various programs in FAS, which could possibly bring the Schedule 70 contracts under the same umbrella as the other multiple award schedules contracts.
