Alan Thomas, a vice president at government consulting firm Artlin Consulting, has taken his oath of office as commissioner of the General Services Administration‘s Federal Acquisition Service.

GSA said Monday Thomas will oversee the newly reorganized FAS and help align GSA’s acquisition strategies with President Donald Trump’s business and technology initiatives.

The agency notified Congress of plans to merge the Technology Transformation Service with FAS in June.

“Alan’s background in both industry and government gives him a unique and valuable perspective on GSA,” said Tim Horne, GSA acting administrator.

Thomas has more than 20 years of experience in the public and private sectors, including roles as chief operating officer at Berico Technologies; vice president of Defense Department and intelligence community programs at Data Networks Corp.; and an associate at Booz Allen Hamilton.

He also served as a program manager at DoD; a management analyst in the Department of the Army; and a defense acquisition management analyst at the office of the under secretary of defense for acquisition, technology and logistics.
