GSA announces consolidation of IT under CIO


The General Services Administration announced Feb. 19 it will consolidate all information technology personnel, budgets and systems under the authority of its chief information officer.

In a blog post, Acting Administrator Dan Tangherlini said the result will be "a new technology office that has the ability to directly provide all IT services and support directly to the entire agency."

The consolidation decision is the result of a review conducted over the past 10 months, Tangherlini said.

As a result of it, all human capital management personnel and operations will also consolidate under the chief people officer and "a number of administrative functions" will be brought together under the Office of Administrative Services, Tangherlini said.
