The General Services Administration is seeking a senior manager to provide strategic guidance to the Office of Telecommunications Services in its Federal Acquisition Service.
In a job listing posted on USAJobs, the agency said the Director of Telecommunications Services position, which pays $126,148 to $174,500 per year, should have an eye on “change leadership” for the office.
The office also oversees the agency’s $50 billion, next-generation Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions telecommunications contract.
In April, Amando Gavino, who'd held the position previously, was moved to become director of information technology services in the Office of Information Technology Category.
He was shifted in a flurry of other personnel changes in contracting and regional offices rolled out in an internal memo from GSA Administrator Emily Murphy.
The job listing closes July 23.
