Bill Sisk, GSA’s acting federal acquisition service deputy commissioner, has been named the service’s deputy commissioner, the agency confirmed on July 16.

Sisk became acting deputy commissioner in November 2012, taking the position after the previous deputy commissioner, Jon Jordan, retired. Sisk had previously served as the assistant commissioner for FAS’ Office of General Supplies and Services.

Sisk has been at the agency for 23 years, beginning as an intern, working his way up to become the FAS Southeast Sunbelt Region commissioner and the acting Public Buildings Service Southeast Sunbelt Region Commissioner, according to the agency.

FAS has seen a few new faces in the last six months. Tom Sharpe, the current FAS commissioner, came from the Treasury Department in January.

Former FAS commissioner Steve Kempf moved on last fall. Mary Davie, GSA's assistant commissioner for the Office of Integrated Technology Services, served as acting FAS commissioner until Sharpe was named.
