Former FTB executive Will Bush

To head Department of General Services

Governor Schwarzenegger has appointed Will Bush the new director of the Department of General Services (DGS). Bush has served as the interim director for DGS since January 2007, and undersecretary for the State and Consumer Services Agency (SCSA) since 2006. From 1975 to 2006, Bush served in a number of different positions at FTB including chief deputy, assistant executive officer of operations and enterprise technology, director of taxpayer information systems, director of communications and public affairs, and tax auditor/administrator. Bush left FTB in 2006, after serving as the interim executive officer.

Bush, 55, of Elk Grove, earned a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from California State University, Sacramento. The position of director of DGS requires Senate confirmation.

DGS is the state's business agent and performs a broad array of services for the public and its government customers. Some of its diverse functions include e-commerce and telecommunications, management of state-owned and leased properties, and architectural approval of local schools and other state buildings. DGS provides most of the state's printing needs, manages the vehicle fleet, and oversees the state's procurement of supplies needed by other state agencies.
