As the Heartland Regional Administrator, Klumb will oversee all of GSA’s operations in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska; including management of federal real estate and information technology. He will also be responsible for an inventory of 400 government-owned or leased buildings, 1,000 employees, and a budget of approximately $175 million.
"I'm thrilled to welcome Jason Klumb to the GSA leadership team as we work to create a greener, more efficient, more cost-effective, more open, and more responsible government for the American people," said Martha N.
