Kathy Conrad to leave GSA

Kathy Conrad of GSA

Before joining GSA in 2011, Kathy Conrad worked in the private sector.

Multiple sources tell FCW that Kathy Conrad, the principal deputy associate administrator for the General Services Administration's Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technology, will leave GSA in July.

An internal announcement for GSA staff went out today.

Conrad joined GSA in 2011 from the private sector, and has been a central figure in the administration's launch of 18F, Data.gov, Connect.gov and the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program for cloud security. She is a three-time Federal 100 Award winner, and served as acting associate administrator for OCSIT and 18F for much of 2014. 

Conrad confirmed her departure to FCW, but did not specify an exact date or share details on her next steps beyond "take some time off."

Update:  In her email to GSA colleagues, Conrad said that her last day would be July 24.
