Senior General Services Administration technology leader Dave Zvenyach is leaving the agency, FedScoop understands.

According to three people familiar with the matter, he is set to step down from his role as director of GSA’s Technology Transformation Services branch in the coming weeks.

It is understood that Sept. 9 will be Zvenyach’s last day at the agency and that following his departure, current acting Deputy Director Lauren Bracey Scheidt will take over as director on an interim basis.

He has led the Technology Transformation Services division at GSA since January 2021. In a prior stint with the agency during the Obama administration, he held several other senior IT leadership roles, including as director of 18F and a senior technical adviser.


Zvenyach has held other high profile public service roles including as general counsel of the District of Columbia. He is also an adjunct professor at the George Washington University Law School.

No further details were immediately available on Zvenyach’s next destination.

Commenting on his departure, GSA Administrator Robin Carnahan said: “Since rejoining GSA last year, Dave Z has made invaluable contributions to GSA’s mission and to the governmentwide effort to make the public’s interactions with government simpler and more secure.”

She added: “Today, thanks to his efforts, agencies across the federal government are able to more effectively and efficiently deliver for the taxpayers we serve. I look forward to seeing TTS continue to build on this progress in prioritizing customer experience and developing digital solutions that deliver.”

GSA’s Technology Transformation Services branch was launched in 2016 to help agencies across federal government modernize their IT systems and to build, buy and share emerging technology solutions.
