GSA names new CIO

Casey Coleman is now the General Services Administration’s chief information officer, the agency announced today. She had been acting CIO since June 26.

In a statement, GSA Administrator Lurita Doan said she has confidence in Coleman’s ability to reduce costs while improving the quality of government services and minimizing technology risks.

“Casey Coleman is the right person to fill this crucial position for GSA,” Doan said.

Coleman moved into the acting CIO role two months ago, replacing Mike Carleton, who left to be CIO and deputy assistant secretary for information technology at the Health and Human Services Department’s Office of the Assistant Secretary for Resources and Technology.

Previously, Coleman was CIO at GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service. She also served for two years as the Federal Technology Service’s CIO and held leadership positions at GSA’s Office of Citizen Services and Communications from 2002 to 2004.
