Barbara Shelton

The General Services Administration has named Barbara Shelton to be the acting head of the new Federal Acquisition Service.

Shelton, who has been acting commissioner of the Federal Technology Service since February, will assume her new role before Oct. 1.
David Bibb, GSA's deputy administrator, said earlier this month that the agency would establish FAS'which will combine FTS and the Federal Supply Service'before the end of the fiscal year.

'Barbara has been a key leader on the team that has worked to develop the draft plan for the very challenging task of consolidating FTS and FSS into FAS,' said Stephen Perry, GSA administrator. 'Through her leadership and expertise, she has contributed significantly to the effort to develop an FAS organization which will meet [several] key objectives.'
