General Services Administration’s Federal Acquisition Service commissioner Jim Williams has opted to retire. On April 3, he will step down from his position, he said in a message, with confirmation coming from the GSA shortly after.
“I feel like I have been incredibly blessed and fortunate to have been able to serve our great nation for over thirty years and do so with so many people around the world that I like and respect. I also believe our country’s future is bright because of the dedicated and fantastic people that I have had the opportunity to serve with and to have been part of teams of people, many still serving government, that work hard to deliver positive results for the American people, our military and law enforcement personnel, and all other parts of government,” Williams said.
Williams had served as FAS commissioner since 2006 and filled in as acting administrator of the GSA at the end of the George W. Bush administration.
