SBA's Joe Jordan heads to OMB as special assistant

Joe Jordan, currently the associate administrator of government contracting and business development at the Small Business Administration, is heading to the Office of Management and Budget, an SBA spokeswoman said Nov. 30. An OMB spokeswoman confirmed the move as well.

At OMB, Jordan will be coming on as senior adviser to Federal Chief Performance Officer and OMB Deputy Director for Management Jeff Zients in mid-December. He will advise Zients and his senior staff on policy and procurement matters.

His last day at SBA will be Dec. 9.

Jordan became the associate administrator at SBA in March 2009. Prior to that, he was the engagement manager with McKinsey and Company, a global management consulting firm. There, he specialized in developing purchasing and supply management strategies.

OMB is losing its administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy, Dan Gordon, this month. Gordon is going to George Washington University to be dean of government procurement law studies.

At SBA, John Shoraka, SBA Regional Administrator for Region 3, will take Jordan's place.
