Joe Jordan's reading list

Joe Jordan

As administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy, Joe Jordan is focused on one thing: “To deliver the best value to the American taxpayer when procuring the $500 billion worth of goods and services we buy each year.” Outside the office, however, the interests of the former Small Business Administration official, McKinsey and Co. consultant, and cable news journalist are a bit more varied — as his current reading list makes clear.
