GSA's Davie 'happy to be back'

GSA's Mary Davie

Mary Davie reached the end of her stint as acting Federal Acquisition Service commissioner at the General Services Administration in January, and, having had some time to reflect, she seems happy to have had the experience.

Being acting commissioner "was an exhilarating ride," she wrote March 15 on her Great Government Through Technology blog. "It provided a lens into just how important our role is in -- and to -- the government at all levels: federal, state and local."

Davie is now back to her regular job as the assistant FAS commissioner for the Information Technology Service. Thomas Sharpe took over the role of FAS commissioner in January.

But during her time as acting commissioner, Davie said, she learned how important GSA is to government agencies, fulfilling roles as diverse as providing emergency support during weather emergencies or helping agencies consolidate space.

Now she is taking that perspective back to her office.

"Armed with a greater knowledge, I am confident ITS can support government needs, deliver efficient operations, drive world-class value, and be recognized as agile and innovative," she wrote.

Overall though, she reassured readers, "It's great to be back at ITS."

Mary Davie is one of the best leaders in government, and I hope GSA understands the important contributions she continues to make for the government, GSA, and taxpayers
