Sept. 20'Michael W. Carleton will take over as chief information officer for the General Services Administration, replacing Bill Piatt, who will leave the agency on Oct. 20 to take a post in the private sector, officials announced Tuesday.

GSA's CIO is the principal adviser to the administrator and all GSA offices on information technology. Carleton will govern the agency's IT investments and direct technology's role in aligning business investments and managing the agency's core infrastructure, officials said.

"Lots of exciting challenges are on the horizon,' Carleton said of his new role. 'Evolving the FirstGov.gov portal at Internet speed, collaborating with the services on IT capital investments, and achieving a world-class information infrastructure for service delivery are at the top of my agenda."

Carleton said he is excited to be involved in implementing GSA's electronic government strategies and its 'commercial-like business practices.'
