David McClure, Associate Administrator of the General Services Administration's Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies, is the recipient of this year's John J. Franke Award from ACT-IAC. McClure accepted the award May 20 at the Management of Change Conference in Cambridge, Md.

ACT President and Nuclear Regulatory Commission CIO Darren Ash explained that the award is generally given to a government IT executive for long-term leadership and staff-development efforts. "Dave has an incredible track record of getting people together and making good things happen," Ash said.

John J. Franke, who died in 1991, was an agency executive and director of the Federal Quality Institute.

McClure accepted the award by noting that he was honored to be grouped with the previous winners, who include the Office of Management and Budget's Lisa Schlosser, former Veterans Affairs Department CIO Roger Baker, and then-Agriculture Department CIO Ira Hobbs.

McClure also took the opportunity to address rumors of "my imminent demise" -- speculation that he would soon either retire or return to the private sector. "There is still some tread left," he said.

A Federal 100 winner in 2004 and 2012, McClure has worked in the private sector as well as in government, and he urged the audience to move around rather than spend their career in a single agency. But for himself, he said, this is too exciting a time to leave government.
