Interested in being Federal Acquisition Service commissioner, but haven’t gotten around to polishing that resume? The General Services Administration just extended the deadline, but the window is closing fast.

GSA officials tweeted on Nov. 14 that applications are now being accepted until Nov. 16 on the USAJobs site. The agency has been advertising the open position since September.

The FAS commissioner is the senior executive responsible for the procurement side of GSA, and the primary advisor to the administrator and the deputy administrator on all FAS matters. The commissioner guides nearly $95 billion in government spending annually while driving FAS to find greater savings through high-value contracts.

Steve Kempf was the most recent commissioner, but he left the position in July for medical reasons. Mary Davie, assistant FAS commissioner for the Integrated Technology Services, has been standing in as acting commissioner since then.

Or do you want another job in the second Obama administration? Here’s some information on how to apply.
