FAS names first travel director

The Federal Acquisition Service today named Timothy Burke the first director of its Office of Travel and Transportation Services, a Senior Executive Service position on FAS Commissioner Jim Williams' leadership team. The position became effective Aug. 19, 2007.

As director, Burke will oversee the procurement and delivery of about $1.5 billion in travel and transportation services for federal agencies. He has been acting in this position, in addition to maintaining two other executive positions, since January. He also was the executive program manager for E-Gov Travel during this time.

Before joining GSA in 2001 as director of travel management policy in the Office of Governmentwide Policy, he worked at the Transportation Department as director of federal travel for the Office of the Chief Financial Officer.

In 2003, Burke won a Federal Computer Week Federal 100 Award.
