DANIELS NAMED TO CHAIR GSA BOARD OF CONTRACT APPEALS

 WASHINGTON, Dec. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Administrator Richard G. Austin of the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) today announced the appointment of Stephen M. Daniels, a member of the General Services Board of Contract Appeals (GSBCA) since 1987, as chief judge and chairman of the GSBCA.
 At the same time, Austin named Robert W. Parker, also a GSBCA administrative judge, as vice-chairman and announced the appointments of Martha Hager DeGraff, a supervisory trial attorney at the Department of Justice, and Allan H. Goodman, an attorney with a northern Virginia law firm, to fill two GSBCA vacancies.
 Vincent LaBella, GSBCA vice-chairman, who has served as acting chairman since early September, will continue as a vice-chairman.
 Austin said DeGraff and Goodman were selected for the two board vacancies under recently adopted, strict selection guidelines. The qualifications of a lengthy list of applicants were reviewed and evaluated by a panel of federal administrative judges and senior attorneys at other federal agencies. The panel established a register of eligible candidates from which Austin made the final selections.
 The GSBCA presides over disputes between vendors and civilian agencies and protests brought by vendors against the conduct of computer and telecommunications procurements by virtually all federal agencies.
 Before appointment to the GSBCA, Daniels served 15 years as counsel to the House of Representatives Committee on Government Operations and assisted in writing the Competition in Contracting Act of 1984 and the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980. He earlier served in the legislative offices of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare and the Office of Management and Budget. He is a graduate of Yale University and the Yale Law School.
 Parker, who received his juris doctorate from the University of Maryland in 1977, was an attorney at the General Accounting Office (GAO) from 1977 to 1983 and was GAO assistant general counsel from 1984 to 1987.
 DeGraff is a cum laude graduate of the University of Missouri and received her law degree from American University. She joined the Justice Department in 1987, serving as a trial attorney and assistant branch director. From 1978 to 1987, she was with the Department of Agriculture as an attorney adviser for the Farmers Home Administration.
 Goodman is a graduate of Georgetown University and the University of Toledo College of Law. He has been with the law firm of Wickwire Gavin, P.C., since 1981, practicing public contract, construction, commercial contract and surety law. He is an adjunct professor of law at Georgetown University and has published numerous papers on public law.
