Strategic sourcing is giving contractors fits across the vendor community. Small businesses especially wonder if they’ll be able to preserve margins and compete in the strategic sourcing environment. Joe Jordan, Administrator of Federal Procurement Policy, was my guest in the 3pm hour today on In Depth with Francis Rose on Federal News Radio to talk about his goals for strategic sourcing.
He’s also going to be a leader in President Obama’s revamped management agenda. Joe told me about the Efficiency Working Group he’s co-chairing with GSA Administrator Dan Tangherlini and Defense Department Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics Frank Kendall.
