Three employees of the General Services Administration's Federal Telecommunications Service received promotions this month. Dave Cleveland, former director of GSA's AT&T FTS 2000 Service Oversight Center, has become deputy assistant commissioner for the Office of Service Development. His former position will be filled by Ron Milam, who served previously as director of the agency's Sprint Service Oversight Center. Carolyn Thomas has left her post as executive assistant in the Office of Service Development to take over Milam's former job. FTS commissioner Bob Woods said the three veterans of the FTS 2000 program "have been a vital part of this program, and their unique skills have played a key role in the success that FTS enjoys today."
