On the Move: Karen Pica


Karen Pica, head of the Federal Acquisition Institute, is moving to the Office of Management and Budget, FedLine has learned.

While at FAI, the government’s school for training civilian procurement personnel, Pica has been a leader in acquisition work force recruitment and retention efforts. During her tenure, she worked with OMB to launch a Federal Acquisition Intern Coalition to recruit and train new hires to be contracting officers.

FedLine is told that Pica will continue to focus on solving the shortfalls in the acquisition work force as a policy analyst for OMB’s Office of Federal Procurement Policy.

No word yet on who will replace Pica at FAI. As always, we’ll keep you posted.
