Bibb said “There is no better place to work in the federal government than GSA. I’ve had the privilege to work alongside some of the most dedicated, brightest, hardworking people you will find anywhere in government The citizens of our country can be proud of the work GSA has done to bring the best value to taxpayers when delivering the goods and services that keep government running.”
