About Office of Administrative Services (OAS)

The Office of Administrative Services (OAS) is dedicated to improving how the Federal Government delivers administrative services, by transforming the way we work within. Although its most well-know function may be managing all aspects of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) program, OAS is home to a wide range of program areas. In addition to overseeing internal administrative policies, OAS is also responsible for the management of executive correspondence, maintaining the agency’s internal directives, setting travel and charge card policies, and developing workplace initiatives, including one aimed at dramatically reducing the federal building footprint.

OAS is based at GSA federal headquarters at 1800 F Street in Washington D.C. and is headed by Chief Administrative Services Officer Cynthia Metzler.
