Acting TTS Director to Return to FDIC

Rena Schild/

Bob DeLuca, who took temporary leadership of the Technology Transformation Services in July, will return to his duties as FDIC deputy chief information officer Dec. 21. 

Bob DeLuca’s temporary detail directing Technology Transformation Services at the General Services Administration has come to an end, and GSA confirmed David Shive has taken over the TTS job in addition to his role as chief information officer. 

Shive assumed the TTS director position in an acting capacity Nov. 29, a GSA spokesperson told Nextgov in an email. DeLuca will stay at TTS through Dec. 18 to assist with the leadership transition, GSA said. 

On Dec. 21, DeLuca will return to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as deputy chief information officer, a spokesperson for FDIC confirmed in an email. DeLuca was called back to GSA to serve as TTS acting director after just one week into the job, according to previous reporting by Nextgov

DeLuca’s role at TTS was always meant to be temporary. GSA called DeLuca back to step in at TTS after then-Director Anil Cheriyan retired. GSA Director Emily Murphy said in July she asked DeLuca and FDIC leadership if DeLuca would return to GSA until a permanent director for TTS could be appointed. DeLuca previously served as executive director for GSA’s IT modernization Centers of Excellence for two years beginning in 2018. 

FDIC and GSA agreed to maintain DeLuca’s status as an FDIC employee while he directed TTS until a replacement could be found, Murphy said in July. DeLuca also worked as deputy commissioner of the Federal Acquisition Service while on the GSA detail. 

Shive moved into the CIO role in 2015, according to his LinkedIn page. He joined GSA in 2012, according to the agency’s website.
