O’Hare Named Chief Information Officer for GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service
O’Hare previously served as the FAS assistant commissioner for strategic business planning and process improvement before becoming the acting chief information officer for FAS in July.
“Ed’s vast experience and his performance as acting CIO for the Federal Acquisition Service made him the easy choice to be the permanent CIO,” FAS Commissioner James Williams said.
O’Hare was the CIO and the deputy CIO for the legacy Federal Supply Service from 1996 through 2001. During that time, O’Hare was responsible for the development of “GSA Advantage!,” the agency’s one-stop shopping Web site for GSA customers.
Prior to returning to GSA in 2006, O’Hare was a vice president for Dynanet Corp., where he led the development of compliant and secure information technology systems and programs for federal, state and commercial clients.
