Washington, DC - U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Administrator Lurita Doan today announced Kimber Boyer will serve as the agency’s Associate Administrator for the Office of Performance Improvement (OPI).
“GSA’s Office of Performance Improvement now has a strong leader who will bring the right set of skills to support both GSA and the President’s management agenda,” said Administrator Doan. “I look forward to Kim continuing to build and strengthen GSA’s Office of Performance Improvement.”
The Office of Performance Improvement is responsible for oversight and designing action plans to review the organizational performance measures and the execution of those measures to meet GSA's strategic goal of performance improvement. President Bush called on all federal agencies to improve performance and provide effective and efficient services to the American people. OPI serves as the catalyst to ensure GSA implements a rigorous process for developing and executing performance improvement, as ordered by the President of the United States.
OPI provides advice on major policies and procedures related to GSA performance functions to the Administrator and Deputy Administrator. In addition, the office is responsible for overseeing the development and execution of GSA's competitive sourcing program. OPI also ensures that all GSA products and services provide the best value to our customers.
Prior to his appointment at GSA, Mr. Boyer was Director of Strategic Planning and Oversight for the Republican staff of the House Committee on the Budget. Before that position, Boyer held executive management positions with several private sector companies.
“I look forward to the privilege of serving President George W. Bush under the leadership of Administrator Doan as the Associate Administrator of the Office of Performance Improvement,” said Mr. Boyer.
Mr. Boyer holds an undergraduate degree in Economics from Youngstown University in Youngstown, Ohio. He is married and has four adult children.
