WASHINGTON – U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Acting Administrator David L. Bibb today announced that he has named J. Gregory Brennan as Acting Associate Administrator for the Office of Performance Improvement (OPI), which is responsible for implementing President's Management Agenda initiatives at GSA, along with other GSA performance improvement programs.
"I welcome the challenges and opportunities of serving the Administration and GSA within the Office of Performance Improvement,” Brennan said. “Great progress has already been made at GSA in implementing the President's Management Agenda, and my task is to ensure the continuation of those efforts."
Brennan, GSA’s Deputy Associate Administrator, Small Business Utilization, from July 2005 to Jan. 22, 2006, when he assumed his OPI duties, assists Bibb with implementing initiatives such as linking budget with performance, competitive sourcing, performance measurements and the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA).
Brennan was Executive Officer in the Ministry of the Interior under the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq, prior to his arrival at GSA. He earned his bachelor’s degree in English from Xavier University in Cincinnati and his MS degree in public policy from George Mason University.
