President Donald Trump intends to nominate Emily Webster Murphy, a senior adviser at the General Services Administration, as the next GSA administrator.
Murphy previously served as a House Armed Services Committee counsel focused on acquisition policy and reform, the White House said Saturday.
Her Capitol Hill career has also included time as a senior counsel in charge of oversight, investigations, legislation and outreach related to acquisition and workforce matters for the House Small Business Committee.
She also held the roles of chief acquisition officer at the GSA and senior adviser for government contracts and business development at the Small Business Administration.
Murphy’s career in the private sector included roles such as vice president of government contracting and compliance programs at telecommunications company TerreStar Networks and as an associate in government contracts and government affairs practices at law firm Wiley Rein.
