Youel Page makes shift from Treasury to GSA
Long-time procurement official moves to the Integrated Technology Service at GSA.
Kevin Youel Page soon will be deputy assistant commissioner of the General Services Administration’s Integrated Technology Service.
He starts the new position Sept. 25, and Mary Davie, ITS' Assistant Commissioner, will be his boss.
Youel Page has been the deputy director of the Office of the Procurement Executive at Treasury Department since 2010.
Here's the letter Davie sent out about the announcement.
I am thrilled to announce that I have selected Kevin Youel Page as the ITS deputy assistant commissioner. Kevin is joining us from the Department of the Treasury’s Office of the Procurement Executive. I have personally known and worked with Kevin since 2005 when the Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative was launched and Kevin and the Department of Treasury provided the leadership to gain governmentwide attention for aggregating and leveraging [spending]. Kevin most recently served as the deputy director in the Office of the Procurement Executive at the Department of Treasury, and brings extensive public- and private-sector experience supporting federal agencies with acquisition strategy development, systems analysis, modernization and implementation. Serving as an 1102, he has deep “in-the-trenches” government IT contracting experience. He has successfully led complex and high-profile initiatives, such as the consolidation of the headquarters procurement operation and standing up and leading the procurement team for Treasury’s Troubled Asset Relief Program. Kevin is an innovator and thought leader and will be a wonderful addition to GSA and the ITS leadership team.
I want to also sincerely thank Bruce Caughman for his outstanding contribution as Acting Deputy Assistant Commissioner for the last 18 months. Bruce has been essential during my transition to ITS and has played an invaluable role in many ITS programs such as co-leading our Cloud IT Services Program Management Office with OCSIT. Bruce will stay on in ITS and become our chief of staff on Sept. 25 when Kevin joins us.
Please join me in welcoming Kevin and Bruce to their new positions.
