Senate Confirms Martha N. Johnson as GSA Administrator After Nine-Month Delay

Washington – Nearly ten months after her nomination last April, the U.S. Senate today confirmed Martha N. Johnson as Administrator of General Services.

Upon assuming office, Johnson will become the first permanent Administrator of the General Services Administration in nearly two years.

“Through the many transitions in leadership, GSA has stepped forward as a faithful and energetic steward of President Obama’s recovery and sustainability agenda, and of the new opportunities to promote government transparency, openness, and participation,” said Johnson. “As Administrator, I will leverage the agency’s strong leadership to build a team that welcomes talent, exhibits performance excellence, collaborates, and innovates; a team that through knowledge, expertise, and transparency, will reform procurement and help move the President’s agenda for improvements in the professional acquisition workforce.”
