GSA names Coleman acting CIO

The General Services Administration has named Casey Coleman acting chief information officer, the agency announced today. She has been CIO at GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service.

Coleman replaces Mike Carleton, who is leaving to be the Health and Human Services Department's CIO and deputy assistant secretary for information technology within the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Resources and Technology.

Coleman was FAS’ first CIO since its creation in October 2006. She had been CIO at the GSA’s Federal Technology Service, and she headed the GSA Office of Citizen Services from 2002 to 2004.

“Casey Coleman brings an incredible set of skills and talents to this position,” GSA Administrator Lurita Doan said in a statement, noting Coleman’s extensive experience in senior management at GSA and successfully led projects.

Currently, Coleman also is a board member of the Government IT Executive Council. She also helped redesign the multiple-award schedule procurement process, reducing process time from more than 100 days to less than 20.
