announced he will be leaving the agency to become the director of e-government

agency's Public Building Service and then taking over as the agency CIO

the GSA infrastructure to the Seat Management centralized information technology

management contract.

Interoperability &Emerging IT Committee. In this role he has been one

of the leaders for the development of the FirstGov Web portal, a site intended

to provide citizens with a single point of contact for all government functions

and services.

Piatt could not be reached for comment.
