Kay Ely, assistant commissioner for information technology at the General Services Administration’s Federal Acquisition Service, is set to leave the agency by Sept. 30 to take a 90-day assignment related to the GSA-Office of Personnel Management merger, Federal News Radio reported Monday.
Ely will initially work with a task force in charge of the GSA-OPM merger over the three-month period before she goes into retirement by Dec. 31.
She joined GSA in 2011 after a five-year tenure at OPM, where she served as chief learning officer and deputy associate director for contracting, facilities and administrative services.
She previously worked at ASI Government and served four terms on the advisory board of the National Contract Management Association.
Ely also worked at the Office of Management and Budget’s office of federal procurement policy as associate administrator for acquisition implementation.
