Secretary Perdue Announces New Budget Director at USDA


“A top priority at USDA is to be the most effective, most efficient, and best-managed department in the entire federal government, and highly qualified officials like Erica will help us achieve that goal,” Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said. “Erica has a sterling track record and excellent credentials, and I am confident she will focus that talent serving America’s farmers, ranchers, foresters, and agricultural producers.”

Navarro previously served as the budget director for the U.S. Department of Education. Before that, she served as budget director for the U.S. General Services Administration and Acting Deputy Assistant Administrator and Senior Advisor for the Africa Bureau at the U.S. Agency for International Development. She began her career serving in the Office of Management and Budget.

She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Tulane University before earning her Master of Business Administration with a concentration in finance from the Yale School of Management.
