Susan Brita - Deputy Administrator
Susan Brita was named deputy administrator for the U.S. General Services Administration on Feb. 2, 2010.
As deputy administrator, Brita works closely with members of the GSA senior leadership team to provide guidance to GSA employees, devise policy and provide services to other federal agencies, enabling them to best achieve their missions of service to the American people. Brita is no stranger to the broad spectrum of services GSA provides; from 1985 to 1988 she served as chief of staff to then Administrator Terence Golden, where she worked closely on agencywide initiatives.
Most recently, Brita served as the staff director for the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Subcommittee on Economic Development, Public Buildings, and Emergency Management, a position she had held since 1992. During her tenure, Brita’s broad portfolio included GSA, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Architect of the Capitol. These positions gave her the opportunity to focus on each phase of federal real property management.
Brita received her master’s degree with honors in public administration from George Washington University in Washington, D.C., and a Bachelor of Arts from Cardinal Cushing College in Brookline, Mass.
