Sade to leave Commerce for GSA

Mike Sade, the long time procurement executive at the Commerce Department, is moving to the General Services Administration's Federal Acquisition Service.

Sade had long been rumored to be moving to GSA, and FAS commissioner Jim Williams made it official with an announcement to FAS employees this morning. His first day will be Dec. 24.

In his new position at FAS, Sade will be the assistant commissioner for acquisition management, where he will lead the acquisition career management, supplier management and acquisition program management initiatives.

He also will work closely with the office of the chief acquisition officer 'to ensure the consistent application of acquisition policy and guidelines across business portfolios and FAS,' Williams wrote in his announcement.

Sade replaces Jeff Koses, who had been acting since GSA officially launched FAS in October. Koses will return to his own position in the office.

Since 1989, Sade has been Commerce's director for acquisition management and financial assistance, and procurement executive, where he led the implementation of new systems to streamline the procurement process, provided risk management to ensure the usage of sound and legal business arrangements, coordinated policy development and implementation and led acquisition workforce training.
