Federal 100: Paul Prouty
General Services Administration
Prouty stepped in as acting administrator of GSA days after President Barack Obama took office. He stayed in that role for nearly a year and was critical to increasing government transparency in many areas, including contracting, and fostering communication between the government and the public.
“Paul’s leadership enabled GSA to be responsive to [the Office of Management and Budget] and the White House’s priorities during the presidential transition,” said Martha Dorris, deputy associate administrator of GSA's Office of Citizen Services and Communications. "Paul ensured that GSA successfully launched Recovery.gov [and] focused resources on cloud computing and citizen engagement."
Prouty has returned to his job as assistant regional administrator of GSA's Rocky Mountain Region.
