The General Services Administration has tapped Denis Gusty to head its Office of Intergovernmental Solutions.
Gusty, who started at GSA last month, was the project manager of GovBenefits.gov, one of the 25 Quicksilver e-government projects, which the Labor Department managed. Jeff Koch replaced Gusty as project manager.
In his new position, Gusty will work to increase the collaboration between federal, state, local and international governments. He will lead the effort to develop a worldwide directory of IT officials, publish newsletters on important issues, and coordinate and manage three groups of federal, state and local officials. Gusty also will continue the federal government's participation in North American Day, which brings together officials from the United States, Canada and Mexico to discuss e-government issues.
Gusty replaced Martha Dorris, who had been the acting director since Frank McDonough retired in April 2003. Dorris became the acting deputy associate administrator in GSA's Office of Citizen Services and Communications.
While at Labor, Gusty worked with 10 agency partners to implement a portal that brought together 410 federal benefit and 252 state benefit programs. He also was the project director for the systems development and technology support for the Bureau of Labor Statistics Office of Compensation and Working Conditions.
Gusty earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from Robert Morris University in Moon Township, Pa., a bachelor's degree in computer information systems from Strayer University in Washington and a master's in information management from Marymount University in Arlington, Va.
