On April 6, 2010 at 2:15 p.m., Administrator Martha N. Johnson was sworn into office by Vice President Joe Biden at a ceremony in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building in Washington.
The Vice President welcomed Administrator Johnson to the Obama administration demonstrating the integral role GSA is playing and will continue to play within the administration.
GSA has risen to this administration's challenges to improve government efficiency, openness, and to stimulate the economy. The agency has begun work through the Recovery Act toward a more sustainable federal infrastructure investing $4 billion to transform federal buildings into higher performing, greener buildings to create jobs and save taxpayer dollars. By doubling the federal hybrid fleet, GSA will improve fleet fuel-efficiency reducing petroleum consumption by an estimated 7.7 million gallons of gas, or 385,000 barrels of oil. GSA has provided agencies with cutting-edge collaboration tools to open government to citizens and will continue to support the federal agenda with innovative information technology solutions, quality acquisition services, superior workplaces, and effective governmentwide policies.
