Federal Acquisition Service Commissioner Sonny Hashmi to Exit GSA

The General Services Administration has announced that Sonny Hashmi, commissioner of the Federal Acquisition Service, will step down from his role on Dec. 29.

Hashmi, a past Potomac Officers Club event speaker and Wash100 winner, has spent almost two years serving as FAS commissioner, GSA said.

According to a press release, he is responsible for the agency’s nationwide procurement efforts and ensuring that the government acquires products and services “at the best value possible.”

GSA Administrator Robin Carnahan said Hashmi contributed to FAS efforts in 2023 to support more than $100 billion in federal procurement, a 36 percent increase over the last three years. Carnahan added that one-third of acquisition spending went to small businesses. FAS also saved taxpayers $6 billion through competition and pricing efforts, according to Carnahan

FAS Deputy Commissioner Tom Howder will serve as acting commissioner after Hashmi exits.

In November, Hashmi revealed that GSA plans to develop a governmentwide acquisition contract vehicle for artificial intelligence.
