GSA systems chief will leave

William Piatt, the General Services Administration's chief information officer, will leave GSA Sept. 30 to oversee electronic-government initiatives at Booz, Allen & Hamilton Inc. of McLean, Va.

GSA Administrator David J. Barram said Piatt's strategic leadership and proven abilities would be sorely missed. Barram called Piatt a terrific leader, innovator of technology and outstanding CIO.

Piatt became GSA's CIO in July of last year. Previously, he was CIO for the agency's Public Buildings Service and for the Peace Corps.

While at GSA, Piatt set information technology policies and oversaw the agency's systems infrastructure.

Barram said he hopes to name a new CIO within the next few weeks.
