Keith Nakasone to Step Down From GSA Post in June

Keith Nakasone, the federal information technology procurement leader, is scheduled to leave his position at the General Services Administration on June 1.

Nakasone has served as deputy assistant commissioner of acquisition management within the Office of Information Technology Category at the GSA since January 2017.

He will leave the agency after spending 32 years in the federal government.

Cheryl Thornton-Cameron, the GSA’s executive director of IT category schedule contract operations, will take on Nakasone’s responsibilities in an acting capacity, FedScoop reported.

Throughout his GSA tenure, Nakasone led the introduction of new federal government IT contract requirements to address risks to the supply chain.

Prior to his IT role at the GSA, Nakasone worked as a senior procurement executive at the Federal Communications Commission. He spent nearly three years at the FCC, where he was responsible for the Enterprise Acquisition Center for all Acquisitions and Procurements, according to Nakasone’s profile posted on LinkedIn.

The outgoing IT procurement lead also previously worked at the Defense Information Systems Agency, latterly as technical director for the procurement directorate.

As technical chief, Nakasone led the joint enterprise licensing agreements for software enterprise procurements, including IT strategic sourcing, business process reengineering and IT and telecommunication acquisition strategy planning.

After over three decades, Nakasone is now set to take on a new role within the private sector.
