GSA's Dave McClure leaves for private sector
Thursday - 4/17/2014, 9:35am EDT
Federal News Radio has confirmed that he will head back to the private sector. McClure is just one of many senior executives to recently leave federal service for the private sector.
McClure has served as associate administrator in GSA's Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies since August 2009.Throughout his time at GSA, McClure pushed for innovation and transparency in government, especially under a tight budget.
"We are at a pressure point and we need to look to technology to provide efficiencies, high quality services and save money," he said during a panel discussion in 2011. "We are entering an opportunistic period for technology to shine bright and get more bang for the buck."
McClure played a prominent role in developing and rolling out the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP), which offers a standardized approach to ensuring cloud services meet security standards.
Before joining GSA, McClure was managing vice president for Gartner Inc.'s government research team and vice president for e-government and technology at the Council for Excellence in Government. He previously held an 18-year career at the Government Accountability Office.
McClure is a three-time winner of Federal Computer Week's Fed 100 Awards. He also received AFFIRM's 2010 Governmentwide IT Leadership Award.
NextGov first reported McClure's announcement to leave GSA.
