Joe Jordan is resigning as the administrator in the Office of Federal Procurement Policy. Jordan is going to FedBid as the president of the public sector, according to a company press release.
OMB Director Sylvia Burwell confirmed Jordan’s decision to leave.
The company said in a release Jordan will help grow and manage FedBid’s federal buyer base, while also working to grow the company’s efforts in the state, local and education sectors.
Additionally, Jordan will assist with the company’s recent private-sector launch, a move to open commercial businesses of all sizes to buy commodity goods and simple services in the online marketplace.
“With a diverse career over the last 20 years of significant public and private sector procurement, contracting, business process and solution-making successes, Jordan will be a natural fit to move FedBid’s public sector business forward,” said FedBid CEO Ali Saadat in an statement.
Jordan will stay at OFPP through the end of January. Lesley Field, the deputy administrator, will step back into the acting role when Jordan leaves.
