The General Services Administration has created a third service line to helpÂ federal agencies identify and acquireÂ tools and platformsÂ toÂ digitally transform their organizations.
GSA established theÂ Technology Transformation Service organization to house the agency’s digital services group 18F, Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies and Presidential Innovation Fellows program, the agency said Tuesday.
The agency named PhaedraÂ Chrousos, former associate administrator of OCSIT,Â as commissioner ofÂ theÂ new service line and appointedÂ Aaron Snow, current executive director of 18F, asÂ deputy commissioner.
“The Technology Transformation Service will help agencies navigate how to build, buy, and share user-centered and emerging technology solutions,” GSA Administrator Denise Turner Roth wrote in a blog entry posted Tuesday.
The organization also seeks to provideÂ GSAÂ a platform to implementÂ emerging technology projects.
GSA hasÂ two other business lines, namely the Public Buildings Service and the Federal Acquisition Service.
