GSA kicks off search for innovation chief

 

The search is on for a candidate to follow Phaedra Chrousos (above) Commissioner of the Technology Transformation Service.

The General Services Administration is on the hunt for a new leader for its Technology Transformation Service.

The agency posted the TTS commissioner job opening on July 11, a few weeks after TTS' inaugural commissioner, Phaedra Chrousos, announced her planned departure.

The nascent organization includes 18F, the Presidential Innovation Fellows program and the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program.

"The Technology Transformation Service will play a critical role in helping agencies create the most accessible, efficient, user-centered and secure technology for the citizens we serve," GSA Administrator Denise Turner Roth said in a statement. "The TTS commissioner will be key to achieving this goal."

Picking up where Chrousos left off, the next commissioner will be tasked with managing, growing and cementing the work of TTS' cloud- and user-centered programs.

The position will pay between $123,175 and $185,100.

GSA plans to rely heavily on resumes and supplemental technical competency statements. Applicants must be able to obtain a top secret security clearance.

GSA is accepting applications through July 25.
