GSA Eyes Expansion of Centers of Excellence Program

The General Services Administration is looking to expand its centers of excellence program in three additional agencies in 2019 to support President Donald Trump's management agenda, Fedscoop reported Wednesday.

Anil Cheriyan, leader of the agency's Technology Transformation Service, said that GSA is currently discussing how to proceed with the program and may announce another participating agency next month.

“There’s no reason why we shouldn’t have [another] three running by the end of this year,” he said at a National Academy of Public Administration event.

The three future centers would follow five existing sites with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and other agencies.

"We’ve saved over $21M for USDA so far, and going forward we’re going to be able to save between $6.9M and $8.5M per year," said Emily Murphy, GSA administrator.
