More than 1,020 employees received the offer in an email, and those who are eligible must apply for the buyouts and early outs by July 20, Federal Times reports.

This is the second round of buyouts for GSA, and its Chief People Officer Tony Costa said there will be a third one, according to the article.

I really think our CIO, Casey Coleman is out of touch with what our IT employees do in each region. She and the top IT folks have a one size fits all approach. Essentially they are clueless. Our IT employees work hard and perform vital functions in the region and were offered buyouts. It seems like she spends too much time promoting how great our IT innovation is and public speaking and little time is spent on communicating with employees and tending to matters in each region. We try to communicate with her but she just refers the matter to the region and doesn't want to address it herself.
