The impact: Her work has resulted in significant cost savings while promoting participation goals for small and disadvantaged businesses and improving the acquisition workforce’s productivity.

The nuts and bolts: Rung’s leadership of the Cost Reduction Project has led to reduced wireless costs, better printing management and strategic sourcing for seven principal commodity purchases, including computers. She also created an agencywide network of strategic sourcing experts from each of Commerce’s major bureaus. Her efforts have yielded more than $4 million in savings and are expected to save $18 million in the next 12 months.
