“I miss my GSA family and am thankful for all that I learned and was able to contribute to while I was a part of GSA IT and FAS, but I am grateful for the warm welcome at DOT and look forward to what I’ll be a part of as DOT continues into the optimize and transformation phases of its IT consolidation journey,” Mendoza wrote in a post.
Mendoza held his position at GSA for five years, from November 2016 until this March, when he began his new role at DoT.
