My Experience


(1) Presidential Commission Advisor (Commission on the Redesign of Space Station Freedom).

Personal contributions termed 2 of the 3 most critical by MIT President Charles Vest, Commission Chair; further strategic comments decisively embraced by Dr. John H. Gibbons, President Clinton's Science and Technology Advisor.

(2) National Acquisition Reform Innovator/Leader.

Personally initiated multiple award contract strategy embodied by Federal statute (FARA/FASA), then partially implemented by BPA/GWAC regulations -- which lack the effective commitment measures that I advocated.

(3) Exceptionally Accomplished Analyst (USAF/Army staff).

Approach: Overall, optimized executable/predictive planning by involving Industry/users earlier and more effectively while reducing internal Government turbulence, driving to results.

Resolved: President's Management Council waste item ($1.7 Billion annually), industrial base policy improvement ($2.4 Billion saved annually while attaining superior war-fighting performance), spare parts "horror story" fixes, moribund Command procurement intern program revitalized, suggested "Raptor" as air superiority fighter name.

(4) Realistic, Results Driven Operator.

Role: Branch chief/contracting officer/team lead. Source selections ranging to multi-billion values; program/contract briefings to 2 star General Officer/civilian equivalent.

a) Led/delivered flawless source selection panel reports, planning documents way before due dates;
b) Promptly restructured Army Global Command and Control contract, dramatically improving results;
c) Unshackled Vint Hills Farm Station base support contract after BRAC, reducing cost one-third while significantly improving customer satisfaction;
d) Negotiated/executed Independent Research and Development agreements valued at $2 billion annually, identifying $125 million independent research/development contract issue, driving corporate restructuring.
e) Significantly strengthened a classified future trends strategy analysis for the Director of National Intelligence, also presented to the US Army War College. Principal contributions include positive and concrete planning/mobilization steps to prepare for and minimize the effects of terrorist attack.
