“After leading the General Services Administration’s Centers of Excellence program for two and a half years, Bob DeLuca was about to move on to a new job as deputy chief information officer at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation when GSA Administrator Emily Murphy called him back.
Murphy needed DeLuca to hold down the fort at the Technology Transformation Services, a group of programs aiming to function as a central information technology hub for the rest of government, on a temporary basis after former Director Anil Cheriyan retired. DeLuca agreed to return and began his role as acting director in July.
Now, DeLuca is in his last week at GSA before he moves to FDIC Dec. 21. He’s been helping to transition leadership of TTS over to GSA Chief Information Officer David Shive, who will serve as acting director in addition to his role as head of GSA IT until a new permanent director is named. The TTS director job is a political appointee position.
Prior to his exit, DeLuca talked with Nextgov about his time leading TTS and the state of IT modernization in the federal government.” Read the interview here.
