Another GSA official heads to private sector

Another senior General Services Administration procurement official is heading to the private sector.

Roger Waldron, GSA’s acting senior procurement executive, will join Mayer, Brown, Rowe and Maw as counsel, according to an announcement by the law firm March 30. He starts May 1.

In January, the firm Miller and Chevalier announced that Emily Murphy, GSA’s former chief acquisition officer, would return to the private sector after less than two years as CAO.

Waldron, who started working at GSA in 1987, has helped develop and oversee acquisition policies governing GSA’s $60 billion procurement operations. He also has managed the development of governmentwide acquisition policy through the Federal Acquisition Regulation.

He has been a senior manager for the Federal Supply Service, now merged with the Federal Technology Service to form the Federal Acquisition Service.

Waldron also was a member of the Acquisition Advisory Panel, which recently gave Congress and the Office of Federal Procurement Policy a number of recommendations on acquisition policy.

“His presence will support our existing practice and help expand the firm’s ongoing work in the [information technology] area and for commercial entities entering the government market,” said Peter Scher, the law firm’s partner in charge of the Washington, D.C., office.
