GSA's Jeff Koses

Jeff Koses, director of acquisition operations for the General Supplies and Services portfolio at the General Services Administration's Federal Acquisition Service, has been named senior procurement executive in the agency's Office of Governmentwide Policy.

Koses will start in his new position Jan. 30 and be reporting to Anne Rung, who became associate administrator of the Office of Governmentwide Policy in August. Rung had been GSA's chief acquisition officer.

Jim Ghiloni, director of the One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services Program Management Office, will step in as acting director of acquisitions operations at FAS. Sources familiar with the moves said Ghiloni will keep his OASIS duties as well. GSA's OASIS team has said it expects to award contracts in early 2014.

Koses has served as an official spokesman on Capitol Hill for GSA on topics ranging from the Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative to governmentwide acquisition contracts.

"Jeff has the right combination of operational experience and policy background that makes him an excellent agent for further improving federal acquisition," said Roger Waldron, president of the Coalition for Government Procurement, in a statement.
