Personnel shuffles at GSA

revolving door

The deputy assistant commissioner of the General Services Administration's Integrated Technology Services has been named to a new position.

GSA confirmed that Kevin Youel Page, who had been ITS deputy assistant commissioner, is now acting assistant commissioner of the Integrated Award Environment.

The Federal Acquisition Service's Office of Integrated Technology Services is headed by Assistant Commissioner Mary Davie. According to the GSA's website, Mark Day, director of the Office of Strategic Programs, is now acting deputy assistant commissioner, taking over Page's duties. Day's own LinkedIn profile also reflected the change, noting: "Interesting role to be a deputy. That is one role in long career that I have always avoided, but when asked to serve....!"

ITS is responsible for providing access to best-value IT and telecommunications products, services, and solutions to federal, state, local and tribal government organizations.

Page, meanwhile, replaces Amanda Fredriksen, who had also been running the Integrated Award Environment in an acting capacity. Fredriksen was reportedly placed on administrative leave in June in the wake of a May report from the GSA inspector general that reviewed 2011 leadership conferences in Orlando and Atlanta.
