Editor's note: Thanks to all of you who noted that this post incorrectly attempted to write the Federal Systems Integration and Management Center out of existence. It is in fact still assisting federal agencies in implementing IT projects and we apologize for the error.

The head of the General Services Administration's technology acquisition organization today named Steve Kempf as its deputy assistant commissioner for the Office of Integrated Technology Services.

Kempf, an attorney who had been serving in an acting role in the same position since summer 2006, will help lead the Federal Acquisition Service in planning and implementing its technology service programs, including IT Schedule 70, the governmentwide acquisition contracts, and Networx.

In an email Thursday, John Johnson, the assistant commissioner for integrated technology services, said Kempf "possesses a broad mix of experience and knowledge that make him especially well-suited to help lead the ITS portfolio toward a successful future."

Kempf previously was the director of operations for GSA’s Federal Systems Integration and Management Center, a legacy Federal Technology Service business unit that assists federal agencies in implementing large IT and professional services projects. While there, the organization produced more than $1.8 billion in annual sales.

Kempf also served as an IT manager in GSA’s Region 9 for a variety of clients in the Monterey, Calif., area.
