President Obama has officially tapped Anne Rung to be the next administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy.

Joe Jordan resigned as OFPP adminitrator in January, and deputy administrator, Lesley Field, has been acting in his stead since then.

In May, Rung's move to OMB was widely believed to be preparing her for the future role as OFPP's head.

Rung is currently a senior advisor with the Office of Management and Budget. She previously served at the General Services Administration and prior to that, as the senior director of administration at Commerce.

Before entering the administration, Rung worked at the state lavel as deputy secretary for procurement and administration for Pennsylvania's Department of General Services (DGS).

Rung has a B.A. from Pennsylvania State University and an M.Sc. from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
