Tim Horne: GSA to Incorporate TTS Into Federal Acquisition Service, Names Alan Thomas as FAS Head

The General Services Administration has informed Congress of the agency’s plans to integrate the Technology Transformation Service into the Federal Acquisition Service as part of a reorganization effort, Federal News Radio reported Wednesday.

“By placing all of the offices focused on government modernization into the same organization, GSA will be better able to leverage its expertise and assets in support of the White House and its Office of American Innovation,” Tim Horne, acting GSA administrator, said in a statement published Wednesday.

Horne added that Alan Thomas, former program manager at the Defense Department, will succeed Tom Sharpe as FAS commissioner.

Thomas is a political appointee and a 23-year government and industry veteran.

Kevin Youel Page will continue to serve as deputy commissioner of FAS and Rob Cook will retain the TTS director post, the report added.
