GSA appoints Mitchell to e-commerce post

The General Services Administration announced yesterday that it named Mary Mitchell as deputy associate administrator of the Office of Electronic Commerce in GSA's Office of Governmentwide Policy.

Mitchell replaces Tony Trenkle, who is now director of the electronic services staff at the Social Security Administration.

Mitchell will be responsible for supporting, coordinating and monitoring the government's implementation of e-commerce. She also will co-chair the Federal Electronic Commerce Program Office with the Defense Department. That office provides central leadership for e-commerce use in the government.

Mitchell previously served as program manager in the Information Technology and Applications Office of the Advanced Technology Program at the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
