The Home Secretary revealed on BBC Radio 4 that he had "signed and certified" the extradition order in advance of a court hearing in London tomorrow when it is expected the USA will detail all the charges against the Wikileaks founder.
Assange faces 18 counts, including charges under the US Espionage Act for encouraging, receiving and publishing national defense information in concert with ex-Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning.
Mr Assange denies the allegations. He had sought refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy in 2012 when Sweden was trying to question him about sexual misconduct allegations.
Mr Assange, who is being held in the top-security Belmarsh prison in southeast London, is not expected to attend Friday's hearing in person but could take part via video-link, although it will be largely procedural. It is nearly certain Assange will file an appeal to the High Court after the district judge's ruling, and again (as the law allows) after the Home Secretary's final decision.
"I'm very pleased that the police were finally able to apprehend him and now he's rightly behind bars because he broke United Kingdom law", Javid told BBC radio. The US is included in the Type A of category 2 territories of UK's extradition process (India is in Type B).

Ms Manning, who spent seven years in a military prison for delivering a trove of classified information to Mr Assange before having her sentence commuted by then-President Barack Obama, has been jailed for civil contempt in Virginia after refusing to testify before a grand jury investigating WikiLeaks. The next hearing in the Australian former computer hacker's case is on Friday.
The "first real confrontation of arguments" in court will not be for several weeks or months, according to WikiLeaks editor Kristinn Hrafnsson.
He received a visit on Tuesday from his father, John Shipton, and the Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei, Britain's Press Association reported.
