my extensive career in diverse areas of financial operations supporting diverse government programs/projects has dictated that i provide complex information to varied audiences, requiring a talent for effectively articulating technical information in a manner that is clearly understood my diverse populations. for instance, one of my primary roles as an asset manager with lockheed martin is to develop and deliver complex financial presentations for senior management, providing critical information required to effectively evaluate and drive our asset management program.
as a senior cost analyst with bae systems, i worked with diverse, complex faa programs, with a focus on quantitative cost estimating and systems analysis. in this capacity i steered comprehensive reviews and analyses of varied components within these programs, and then presented my findings and recommendations during planning and status reviews. when i progressed to senior financial analyst with the company, i continued to present critical information to senior staff. for instance, i was responsible for interpreting accounts and financial records and then taking this information and presenting it in a clear, concise manner to support them in optimizing program/operational performance and facilitating short-term/long-term planning. i also routinely consulted with cross-functional management staff on program/project revisions to ensure adjustments consistently remained in compliance.

2. knowledge of the acquisition management system (ams) process, program management and the federal budget process.
in my present position as an asset manager with lockheed martin, i play an integral role in acquisition and program management. i effectively conduct research and analysis of suppliers and products to ensure cost-effective purchasing practices as well as achievement of government requirements, and prepare and submit detailed acquisition recommendations and requests for government approval. additionally, i am in charge of managing a comprehensive asset budgeting/accounting system. prior to joining lockheed martin, i was a senior financial analyst with bae systems, working with faa air traffic organization (ato) programs in compliance with federal budgeting guidelines. i successfully applied both my knowledge of government practices as well as my financial expertise toward developing, instituting and administering budgetary procedures that substantially enhanced budgetary functions such as monitoring labor, overhead, material, and related expenditures i also conducted thorough analysis of expenditures in comparison to previous budgets in order to develop effective budget estimates and expense projections, and gained proficiency in working with, among other technology tools, ato budget.

throughout my career, which has been largely focused on government contracting, i have been responsible for researching, compiling and developing detailed data supporting financial, procurement and contract administration functions. for instance, while a senior cost analyst with lockheed martin, effective data collection, analysis and presentation skills were vital to achieving objectives. i successfully researched, compiled and presented extensive historical cost data on materials, labor, repair, and operational expenses, analyzed the information, and then applied findings toward pricing new services and products by developing and presenting unit cost and project expenses for ecp. in this position, i also collected data for cost accounting reporting and processed a high volume of funding documents for contractual commitments, obligations and deobligations.
