continuity for HQ Air Mobility Command (AMC) by facilitating awarding of $390,000 in contracts for three Information Technology (IT) packages.  Upgraded UNIX for HQ AMC, cutting lead time by 50%, resulting in improved surveillance, reconnaissance and intelligence concerning global strike missions.   Present assignment calls for directing technical support for AMC aerial port operations.


Currently tasked with facilitating IT support for 130,000 Scott AFB personnel as well as off-site locations for six Air Force commands.  Hold responsibility for issuing delivery orders against IT contracts and track fund expenditures of $676,000.  Performed 15 IT package renewals, at a cost of $350,000, and was involved with $110,000 of CAT 5 connectivity systems, which ensured command/control of forces as well as better battle-space awareness.  Supported development of $1.5MM integration and interoperability service contract. 


Recently completed nine purchasing assignments, including working End Building Node requirements to replace old, insufficient equipment, with JITC-approved equipment in support of Voice over Internet Phone (VoIP) and Ipv6 requirements, without negatively impacting operations of worldwide Mobility missions, per DoD mandate.  Negative impact concern involved any delays in the AMC/SG, AFNIC, AMC/A6, 150WS, 375AMW/CC, 375OPS, 18AF and 932 AW, among others.  Negotiated price of $4.5M versus market research price of $5.2M. 


A second purchase of Dell PowerEdge R710 hardware, for $280K, was in support of AMC Global Command and Control System (GCCS), the primary, secret-high, joint-level, command and control system for AMC, AF and DoD, providing personnel, labor, tools, materials and equipment needed to perform work duties.


A third purchase was an additional six Cisco 6500 Backbone Equipment Expansion/ Information Transfer Nodes (ITN), at a cost of $865K, which increased the availability of VoIP and Vindicator alarm system services.  This assured non-interruption of services in the event of scheduled/unscheduled outages, which could impact missions being protected by ITN, such as AFNOC, SATCOM, 932AW among others.  Additionally, having a second ITN in place allows for proactive as well as unplanned-for maintenance without service interruption.


Purchased OCS server hardware, at a cost of $158K, in support of centralizing OCS at Scott AFB as well as assuring reliable communication and strong collaboration with the Air Force in managing mission capabilities from the AFNet to existing legacy systems.  System supports 200,000+ end-users and provides greater integration between telephone and email-based communication. 


Negotiated price of $676K, down from market research price of $900K, for VoIP as a function of transitioning from Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) telephony to new updated IP phone network.  This will assure users will continue to receive appropriate level of voice services as vendors phase out TDM technology and replace with IP service.


To improve Windows Data Center efficiency, as well as to be green yet provide same service level to base customers, purchased $232K Server Virtualization system.  System reduces footprint of base data center servers to reduce power requirements and loads on HVAC and promotes efficiencies in floor power and space allocation as well as fail-over capability and easier maintenance/management.  By reducing loads on existing systems, supports prevention of mission capability and personnel injuries, and works with other base operations currently utilizing virtual servers, i.e. AMC, TACC, 18AF, 932AW and 375AW.


For $123K, secured retina scanning equipment, to be utilized for defending Base systems as well as to protect against various computer areas of vulnerability.  Purchase was made in response to requirement that 375CS Network Battle Management team be capable of scanning Base NIPRNet and SIPRNet with DISA-mandated retina software.  Scott AFB is home to majority of United States

Military Mobility Commands, including US Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM), Air Force Air Mobility Command (AMC) and Army Surface Distribution and Deployment Command (SDDC), all of which utilize DoD Global Information Grids (GIG) for command and control of worldwide military mobility forces, making Scott AFB an extremely high-value target for national adversaries.  Retina scanning capability is another avenue for establishing and maintaining national security at Scott.  


Purchased antivirus servers, at a cost of $39K versus $42K market research cost, to be utilized in defending Scott AFB systems and mitigating any computer system vulnerabilities.  New servers will be used to replace Symantec Antivirus (SAV) Servers currently in use, which are no longer under warranty or supported by manufacturer.  Old parent server experienced catastrophic failure of both HDD drives, which was solved by 375CS/SCOOS restoring server to HAZCON operations, but placing entire Scott AFB systems at risk of having no antivirus updates.  Because of the importance of Scott AFB within the mobility command and control (C2) system, serving as home to the majority of Mobility Commands for the United States Military, it is vital that Scott secure and maintain the highest level of protections of its computer systems.


In support of critical teleconferencing capability, secured teleconference upgrade system, at a cost of $719K, to increase the conference bridge capability for Scott AFB by increasing AS5300 technology platform capability through addition of 600 port expansion.  This will assure no technology-related delays in information sharing/planning for SAFB organizations/users.  Determination of appropriateness of expenditure was made following examination of relevant facts, including that existing conference bridge is 20+ years old and that its TOM technology is in line for phasing out within the next few years.

Once a contract has been awarded, I am tasked with comprehensive oversight in administering all of the agreements contained therein as well as managing all customer interface to ensure proper fulfillment.  In support of receiving maximum return on contractual monies spent, and that all documentation is both complete and accurate, I examine the submitted estimates of materials, equipment services, production costs, performance requirements and delivery schedules.

FACTOR 2:   Ability to aid in acquisition planning and in describing technical requirements for operations, maintenance and repair, which includes complex and diversified services and supplies.


During my four-year assignment as a Strategic Transportation Planner, I served in a number of vital missions involving materiel operations, maintenance and repair.  Among others, these involved  evacuation of sensitive cargo from Iraq theater, deployment of 15,000+ Marines and accompanying 669 tons of cargo, movement of 59 ammunition pallets supporting Lebanese involvement in the Mid-East, and transportation planning for deployment of Air Force Expeditionary Force of 4000+ passengers and 90 tons of cargo.  I was a Contract Officer Representative for a $1.4MM contract that supported innovative IT data analysis capabilities.  Such data was utilized by senior leadership in planning/mitigating air- and sea-lift port levels.

When offers/bids are received, I read through each one thoroughly, using simplified procedures, best value methods and formal source selection procedures, to assure all conditions and requirements have been met, including, of course, eligibility for serving as a government supplier. 


When a decision has been made as to the winner of the contract and it is awarded, my responsibilities then cover comprehensive oversight of the process.  I work closely with all involved individuals, assuring strong communication during all stages and that all points of the agreements are met.  As part of this, I examine all performance requirements and material needs estimates, as well as equipment services and production costs.  I pay particular attention to delivery schedules to ensure they are met according to the contractual agreement. 


Throughout the entire process, I author progress and other relevant reports.
