GSA watchers have been awaiting word on who would be GSA’s deputy administrator. Well, on Wednesday, GSA Acting Administrator Jim Williams named Barney Brasseux as the agency’s number two official.

Brasseaux is widely respected. He served as Williams deputy when he was commissioner of GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service, and had just been named the acting FAS commissioner soon after Williams moved to the corner office.

What remains unclear is whether Brasseaux will be both the deputy administrator and acting FAS commissioner, which seems to be a lot of work, or who Williams will name to the FAS post.

The official release is expected today.

Update: I’m hearing that Brasseaux will not fill both the deputy and FAS job, and that the FAS job will be filled by an outside the Beltway person. Stay tuned.
