GSA FAS changes: Mary Powers-King named acting deputy assistant commissioner

In a unexpected change, John Johnson, the retiring Assistant Commissioner for Integrated Technology Services at GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service, has named Mary Powers-King as the acting deputy assistant commissioner for FAS’s Integrated Technology Services.

Powers-King has been leading GSA’s governmentwide acquisition contracts and the IT schedules contracts program. She will continue in that role, according to Johnson’s memo.

Here is Johnson’s memo to staff:

TO: All ITS employees and contractors

19 agencies on chopping block only account for a small fraction of overall budget


Effective immediately, I am designating Mary Powers-King as the Acting Deputy Assistant Commissioner, Integrated Technology Services. Mary will be acting in this capacity until further notice. Mary will also continue in her role as the Director,GWAC & IT Schedule Programs.

I will appreciate your continued support as Mary takes on this new responsibility.
