Joanne Collins Smee to Step Down From GSA Role; Emily Murphy Comments

Joanne Collins Smee

Joanne Collins Smee, federal acquisition service deputy commissioner and director of technology transformation services at the General Services Administration, will step down from her post by the end of this month.

She intends to return to the private sector after her tenure with the agency where she oversaw the establishment and growth of the Centers of Excellence, GSA said Thursday.

Collins Smee helped the agency grow its CoE effort that functions to modernize the information technology capacities of federal government components, beginning with the Agriculture Department.

“GSA remains committed to completing the important work Joanne has begun at USDA, and to bringing the CoE model to other federal agencies,” said Emily Murphy, administrator of the GSA and a 2018 Wash100 recipient.

“I am confident that the talented team Joanne has put in place will be able to bring about significant, meaningful change in federal IT for years to come,” Murphy added.
