GSA Employees Win 2013 Fed 100 Awards

Federal Computer Week awarded seven GSA employees at the 24th annual Federal 100 technology award ceremony for excellence in leadership, talent, and innovation in the federal technology landscape.

These Fed 100 award recipients exemplify GSA’s mission to deliver the best value in government technology-related endeavors that are responsible for affecting change, progress, and efficiency in determining how the federal government acquires, develops and manages IT.  The Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies placed five winners.  The Federal Acquisition Service and Office of the Chief Information Officer rounded out GSA’s sizable contingent.

Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies Principal Deputy Associate Administrator Kathy Conrad received recognition for being the “chief innovator” for leadership and strategic direction on numerous government-wide shared solutions. Ammie Farraj Feijoo led the USA Search team delivering fast, relevant search results for government websites at no cost. Matt Goodrich energized the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) into new territory with standardization of federal cloud computing security assessments.  Jeanne Holm, the “open data champion,” continued her excellent evangelizing for the mission of data.gov to open federal data to all.  Gwynne Kostin, noted as the “collaboration catalyst,” stood up the Digital Services Innovation Center to help implement the Digital Government Strategy and get agencies delivering digital services anywhere, anytime and on any device.

Mary Davie served with distinction as GSA’s Acting Commissioner of the Federal Acquisition Service. She helped launch the concept of a government-wide acquisition platform and worked across agencies to identify new opportunities to enhance mission delivery and reduce costs while increasing the value and savings provided through existing GSA solutions such as FedRooms, strategic sourcing, E-Gov Travel, and fleet consolidation.

Sonny Hashmi, Deputy Chief Information Officer and Chief Technology Officer, was lauded as the “cloud expander” pursuing savings and new efficiencies leading the migration of thousands of enterprise applications to the cloud.

We congratulate our super seven Fed 100 winners and hope to build on their efforts throughout 2013.
