revolving door

General Services Administration official Kathleen Turco is leaving her post to become the CFO at the Veterans Health Administration at Veterans Affairs.

Before becoming the associate administrator of the Office of Governmentwide Policy for GSA in 2010, Turco served for nearly a decade as the agency's CFO.

"It was a difficult decision but I wanted to move back in to CFO work and this position allows me that opportunity plus serving our veterans," Turco said in an email to OGP staff that was shared with FCW.

Turco’s resume also includes stints at the Internal Revenue Service and the Office of Management and Budget. She will start her new post on June 16, according to her email.

Hmmm, the associate administrator of the Office of Governmentwide Policy leaving GSA. The Chief Officer of Finance Leaving GSA at the same time. Do they know something we don't? Let's summarize the current environment at GSA: Years of Federal employees' salary being frozen; Annual ratings not reflecting employees' performance but rather being used as a means to 'limit' performance bonuses; Positions vacated and not being filled; The over-reactive 'clamp-downs' made by the current, 'appointed' GSA administrator in response to a conference scandal from "one" of GSA's three services. Conservative members of Congress trying to find more and more to blame on the non-Conservative administration. Why would anyone want to be in a position of authority at GSA? (Or, really, at most Federal agencies/commissions.) With our non-cooperative Congress, you might as well paint a bullseye on your back and practice quoting your 5th amendment rights.
