Jim Ghiloni takes over new GSA program

Jim Ghiloni is the new head of the General Services Administration’s Integrations, a new professional services contract.

Steve Kempf, FAS commissioner, said Ghiloni has the experience to oversee the contract. He has been both program manager for the Alliant governmentwide IT acquisition contract and director of business operations for the Assisted Acquisition Service.

“Having both built the premier GWAC and been its number-one customer, makes Jim uniquely well qualified to lead tomorrow’s premier professional services vehicle for GSA,” Kempf said..

Ghiloni will take over for Lisa Maguire, who has been the program manager since the launch of Integrations. She has been developing the ideas behind the contract, often blogging about her ideas.

Maguire will still be at GSA, but working in another capacity, an agency spokeswoman said.

Officials are still in the early stages of the acquisition process for Integrations, but it will be a multiple-agency indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract for commercial and non-commercial services. It will include program management and consulting services, among others.

More importantly, GSA is designing the contract vehicle to address needs for professional services that span several types of services that are often difficult to specify or quantify before making an award.
