The General Services Administration (GSA) has launched a new regulatory division within its Office of the General Counsel to expand GSA technology offerings.
The new office – to be named the Legal Technology Division – will provide “specialized and specialized legal services to GSA’s technology-focused units,” GSA said in a Nov. 10 news release.
“GSA’s commitment to modernizing the government’s approach to technical services is a priority for Administrator Carnahan and his senior leadership team,” said Arpit K. Garg, GSA General Counsel.
By providing specialized and specialized legal services to GSA’s technology-based sectors, this new division will help GSA continue to deliver customer experience and value in technology services.
The new regulatory division will help support many of the efforts GSA has taken to create a simple, flexible, and secure digital infrastructure, and to deliver excellent customer service – from encouraging a proactive approach to modernize IT to create effective digital solutions and services across the government.
The Technology Law Division is currently hiring for the following key positions: Associate Deputy General Counsel for Technology Law and Assistant General Counsel.
The Deputy Assistant General Counsel for Technology Law will lead a growing team to provide client-side legal support to GSA’s technology-based divisions. Applicants must have a proven track record as a technical legal leader.
The Assistant Senior Counsel is responsible for providing client-focused legal support to GSA’s technical-technical divisions. GSA encourages attorneys of all backgrounds to apply, but recommends that applicants have a willingness to learn and work with new technologies and areas of the law.
“The Deputy Assistant General Counsel for Technical Law works closely with senior leaders across the department to provide advice and counsel in an evolving, but critical area of public law. The Senior Associate will provide direct support to our technology-focused division – a great opportunity for a junior attorney to join our growing team,” Garg said.
Applications for both positions will close on December 9.
