Chief acquisition officer leaves GSA for White House

GSA Chief Acquisition Officer Anne Rung will move to the White House to head up the Office of Management and Budget's Office of Federal Procurement Policy, sources with  knowledge of the move told FCW.

Rung will replace Joe Jordan as administrator at OFPP. Jordan stepped down in January to accept a position as president of public sector at FedBid, a privately held company that offers a reverse-auction marketplace in which companies compete for government business by bidding down their prices

At GSA, Rung has had a dual role as chief acquisition officer and associate administrator for the Office of Governmentwide Policy.

A replacement hasn't been named yet, according to sources.  

She was named associate administrator for the Office of Governmentwide Policy at GSA in June 2013 and had been the agency's chief acquisition officer since May 2012.

When Acting GSA Administrator Dan Tangherlini announced the appointment of Rung to the associate administrator position, he said "Anne has been a vital part of our agency since April of last year, serving as our chief acquisition officer and a senior adviser to me on a number of issues. She brings extensive experience in public service at both the state and federal level."

Before joining GSA, Rung had served as senior director of administration at the Department of Commerce, leading and implementing several management initiatives, including acquisition reform. She won FCW's Federal 100 award in 2012 for some of her work at Commerce.

Before that, she served as deputy secretary for administration and procurement for the Pennsylvania Department of General Services, leading four state-wide operations with 77,000 employees and a $4 billion procurement program.

Anne Rung gets things done quickly and saves the government millions of dollars through smart acquisition strategies, streamlined business practices, and very effective communication strategies that penetrate and impact behavior in bureaucracies for the better. OMB is lucky to get her
