The Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee approved Rung for the position during a voice vote Wednesday. Rung's nomination hearing was held the week before.

The full Senate must confirm Rung before she can assume her position at OFPP. No word yet on when that might happen.

If confirmed, Rung will replace Joe Jordan, who left his role as OFPP administrator in December to join private sector firm FedBid.

Rung joined the Office of Management and Budget as a senior adviser in May. Previously, she was the associate administrator of the General Services Administration's Office of Governmentwide Policy.
