DEC. 5—The General Services Administration has appointed Christopher Fornecker as chief technology officer.

Fornecker will report to GSA's chief information officer, Michael Carleton, the agency said.

As chief technology officer, Fornecker will set and enforce the development of policies and procedures, evaluate technology options, maintain vendor relationships and monitor projects, GSA said.

He will also be charged with ensuring that all strategic and tactical initiatives promote the agency's information technology vision, the agency said.

Fornecker formerly was assistant deputy undersecretary of Defense for advanced systems and concepts. He was commissioned as an Army signal officer in 1972 from the U.S. Military Academy and holds a master's degree in electrical engineering from the University of Massachusetts.
