The General Services Administration, the federal agency tasked with managing government buildings and properties, announced Thursday it has named Office of Federal Procurement Policy analyst Mindy Connolly GSAâs new chief procurement officer.
GSA Administrator Martha Johnson announced the new hire in a Thursday staff memo, Government Executive reports.
Connolly, a procurement policy analyst for OFPP, will begin her new role starting Sunday.
As CAO, she will be the agencyâs top official in charge of acquisition management as well as policy decisions, Gov Exec reports.
In addition, Connolly will also manage acquisition systems in GSA and throughout the government and help formulate Federal Acquisition Regulations.
Her tenure at OFPP is notable for her work on sustainability measures. Federal Computer Week reports that she âworked closelyâ on developing the regulations eventually enshrined in an October 2009 executive order directing agencies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to create green IT strategies.
