 CSA Member Johnson Controls’ Filteau Named to GAO Outsourcing Panel 

(Washington, D.C.) – The Contract Services Association (CSA) today announced that Mark Filteau, President of CSA Member Johnson Controls, Inc., was named to a bi-partisan GAO panel that will provide recommendations to Congress on outsourcing.  “We hold a very high regard for Mark Filteau, as we fully supported his nomination to the panel,” said Gary Engebretson, President of the Contract Services Association.  “Mr. Filteau will bring the added recognition to the national discussion of a renowned contractor performing exemplary work in-the-field.  We believe Mark will bring real-life experience from a contractor’s perspective to the panel.” 

The GAO panel, to be convened in compliance with the 2001 Defense Authorization Act, comprises members from industry, the Defense Department, the Office of Management and Budget, and from labor groups. Twelve representatives will be seated on the panel, which must present its recommendations by May 2002. 

“In addition to Mr. Filteau, the Contract Services Association sees great merit in the choices of management expert Stephen Goldsmith and OMB Deputy Director Sean O’Keefe,” said Engebretson.  “These choices were wise because these folks are committed to seeking a path to ‘new’ government through modernization and privatization.” 

Mark Filteau is President of Johnson Controls World Services, Inc., a highly-diversified company with a wide range of contracts and joint ventures producing over $1.5 billion in annual revenue.  Prior to joining Johnson Controls, Mr. Filteau was President of DynCorp Information & Engineering Technology, Inc.  Filteau also served as President of PRC Public Sector, Inc., one of the leading service providers of emergency dispatch and policy records management systems and as Senior Vice President at BDM International, Inc.  He has received rewards which include a Commander’s Award for Excellence from the Air Force Logistics Command and a NASA Achievement Award for work completed on the Hubble Space Telescope.  He holds a Master’s Degree in Urban Planning from Florida State University.
