Former GSA assistant commissioner rejoins former company

O'Hare sets goal of helping firm graduate from 8(a) program

Ed O’Hare, former assistant commissioner for GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service Office of Integrated Technology Services, has rejoined Dynanet Corp. as vice president.

“He will enhance Dynanet’s management team with his extensive experience and provide valuable input to assist in the company’s future growth,” a Dynanet statement said.

Founded in 1995, the Elkridge, Md., company is a Small Business Administration certified 8(a) small disadvantaged business offering a wide range of IT services.

“My main focus will be to grow the company as it comes out of the 8(a) program,” O’Hare told Washington Technology.

O’Hare has more than 35 years of experience in information technology as a senior federal official and private sector employee.

He said he enjoys the atmosphere at a small business like Dynanet “because you are close to everything and you have to do everything. It’s like a family.”

As FAS assistant commissioner O’Hare was responsible for the largest fee-for-service IT procurement and services operation in the federal government, leading a diverse workforce that managed more than 7,000 contracts, according to the GSA website.

In 1996, O’Hare was CIO for the Federal Supply Service and led the development of GSA Advantage! and GSA Auctions electronic commerce systems.

From 2002 to 2003, he served as assistant commissioner for global supply, revitalizing the program and strengthening supply chain capability to meet specialized needs, including military operations in Iraq.

O’Hare served as a senior professional with Booz Allen Hamilton in 2001 and as a vice president at Dynanet from 2004 to 2006, before returning to GSA in 2006 as the first assistant commissioner for the Office of Strategic Planning and Business Process Improvement in the newly created FAS.

Under O’Hare’s leadership FAS launched the new office charged with strategic business planning and performance management. He also directed the evaluation of business process improvement methodologies leading to the establishment of a Lean Six Sigma program.

He became FAS CIO in 2007, overseeing the implementation of GSA’s unified technical support capability.
