GSA selects two for key technology jobs

GSA Office of Information Technology Policy

The General Services Administration named two new directors for information technology policy issues within the Office of Governmentwide Policy this week.

Marie "Terry" Weaver will become director of the Office of IT Accommodation. That office oversees governmentwide compliance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1986, which requires that agencies make technology accessible to employees with disabilities.

Weaver replaces Ronald Kelly, who had been acting director of the office and will stay in his position as director of GSA's Regulatory Information Service Center.

Michele Heffner will serve as director of the Office of Interagency IT Strategies, overseeing the support staff for the federal CIO Council, the Information Technology Resources Board and the Procurement Executives Council.

Heffner, who has worked in the office for some time, will replace Sandra Hense, who retired recently.
