Amazon Business’ Anne Rung: Online Marketplaces Could Help Agencies Meet Competition Requirements

Anne Rung

Anne Rung, director of government for Amazon Business, has said online marketplaces could help federal agencies comply with competition requirements and achieve spending transparency and competitive pricing in terms of government procurement.

Rung wrote in a FedScoop article published Thursday that agencies seeking to meet their small business spending goals could benefit from such online platforms.

“Online marketplaces can help drive more spending to woman-, minority-, and veteran-owned small businesses through seller tools that allow them to easily onboard, identify themselves as a registered small business, and start selling to government customers,” she added.

Rung, former administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy, noted how online marketplaces facilitate compliance and controls and enable agencies to get detailed information on delivery times, prices paid and small business spending through analytics tools.
