General Dynamics Information Technology has received the Defense Department's Value Engineering Achievement Award for Outstanding Contractor.
The General Dynamics team was honored for developing a procedure designed to enhance a process that routes high-demand customer orders to the least expensive buying program.
The project diverted 17,000 orders in 2010, saving customers $3.9 million during the fiscal year. The procedure also reduced vendor delivery backlog and eliminated multiple administrative ordering fees.
“General Dynamics deeply appreciates DLA recognizing our support of the DMLSS program and choosing us for this distinguished award,“ said Kenneth Slaght, vice president and general manager of Navy/Marine Corps services for General Dynamics Information Technology. “Working closely with the program office we have helped improve efficiency, decrease expenses and maximize services for the program's global customers.“
The company earned this award for its support of the Defense Logistics Agency and was honored at a ceremony held at the Pentagon on Wednesday, hosted by Systems Engineering Director for Mission Assurance Nicholas M. Torelli, Jr.
