Every year, one distinguished federal IT acquisition manager receives the coveted John J. Franke award for career excellence. The award last night went to Jim Williams, who recently retired from the GSA as the Commissioner of the Federal Acquisition Service. The award ceremonies were part of the opening banquet for the Management of Change Conference in Philadelphia. In more than 30 years of federal experience, Williams has had some of the toughest jobs. He talks about some of them with Tom Temin in Philadelphia. (Read more about Williams' acceptance speech.)
