GSA Names FAS Coleman as Acting CIO
The U.S. General Services Administrator Lurita Doan has announced Casey Coleman that will serve as the Acting Chief Information Officer for the agency. Ms. Coleman has been serving as the first CIO of the new FAS organization when it was created in October of 2006. Previously she served for two years as the CIO for the GSA Federal Technology Service and also headed the GSA Office of Citizen Services from 2002 to 2004.
“Casey Coleman brings an incredible set of skills and talents to this position. Her extensive experience in GSA senior management and successful projects makes her the right person for this position”, Administrator Doan said.
Ms. Coleman is involved with the Federal IT community and is a board member of the Government Information Technology Executive Council (GITEC). Coleman also championed a business process redesign of the Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) procurement process, with new supporting technology, reducing process time from over 100 days to less than 20 days. She was also named a 2007 recipient of Federal Computer Week’s “Fed 100” award. Ms. Coleman is a native Texan and has a B.S. in computer science from Texas A&M University and a master’s degree in business administration and finance from the University of Texas at Arlington.
Ms. Coleman is replacing Mike Carleton, who is leaving GSA to join the Department of Health and Human Services as their Chief Information Officer and Deputy Assistant Secretary for Information Technology within the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Resources and Technology.
“Mike is a creative leader who has furthered the President’s management Agenda eGov program through quality performance gains at GSA with enterprise architecture, compliance and customer service”, said Administrator Doan.
Mr. Carleton joined GSA in June 2000 and has served since October 2000 as the principal advisor to the Administrator and all GSA offices on information technology and management.
