DOD CIO Awards honor 3 individuals, 3 teams

The Defense Department recently honored three individuals and three teams for IT excellence as part of the 13th Annual DOD CIO Awards.

The awards reflect the priorities within DOD, such as the emphasis on enterprise email and sharing medical data, DOD CIO Teri Takai said in announcing the awards.

“E-mail has become the major communication mechanism,” she said. “It lays the infrastructure … for identity management … and the teams have established a way for the DOD to do enterprise services.”

Medical data on active and retired military members and their families also is a priority. “[There’s a] huge effort underway to upgrade our current medical systems but also to be able to provide the kind of medical capability that our active duty and our veterans really deserve,” Takai said.

In addition to achieving project success, she said the honorees also helped ensure continuity with future developments through IT system accreditation and standardization.

The individual winners are:

First place: Charles (Dean) Corpman, command and control section chief, U.S. Strategic Command, J864.

Second place: John P. Howell, product director, enterprise e-mail (PD EE), U.S. Army.

Third place: Richard L. Ford, Defense Manpower Data Center, Identity Services Division.

First place: Army Enterprise E-mail Migrations Team, U.S. Army NETCOM G-3.
