2018 Fed 100

Federal 100: Vicky Niblett

Name: Vicky Niblett
Title: Deputy Assistant Commissioner, Integrated Award Environment, Office of Systems Management, Federal Acquisition Service
Agency: General Services Administration

Acquisition environmental activist. The GSA-led Integrated Award Environment, which is at the center of the federal acquisition and grant-making community, includes SAM.gov, FedBizOpps, the Federal Procurement Data System and vendor past-performance systems. Many of those legacy systems collect data that is essential to the government's work, but they have struggled with modernization. Niblett encouraged her team to reimagine IAE and embrace a vision for a unified SAM.gov as the trusted, essential place to seamlessly connect with government. Her advocacy of user-centered design principles, agile practices and a focus on delivery has resulted in cost savings and improvements to the existing legacy systems.
