Dan Gordon, an associate dean at George Washington University Law School and former administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy, plans to go into full retirement by July, FCW reported Wednesday.

Mark Rockwell writes that Gordon has worked years providing both direct and advisory services in the field of federal procurement.

Gordon told FCW he has been gradually scaling down on his advisory roles ahead of his planned retirement on July 1, after which he will initially focus on his study of Chinese languages.

He noted that while the U.S. government acquisition system is effective, further development in terms of agility, innovation and competitiveness is needed, as well as collaboration, standardization and investment in the workforce.

Gordon has also held leadership roles in the Government Accountability Office‘s legal services and procurement law divisions during his 17 years with the agency.

He served as acting general counsel at GAO in 2009 before his appointment as OFPP administrator, a position he held for two years before joining academia.

At OFPP, he has worked on strategic sourcing, agency-industry communications, acquisition workforce development and issues with multiple-award contracts, the report said.
