LEXINGTON PARK, MD — Precise Systems’ AIR-1.7 Acquisition Management System (AMS) Team was awarded first place in the Business Innovation category for the 2017 Commander’s Award. The Commander’s Awards are distinguished honorary team awards created to recognize technical, business, and leadership excellence in support of NAVAIR’s focus areas: Speed to the Fleet, Integrated and Interoperable Warfighting Capabilities, and Improve Affordability.
Recipients of the Business Innovation Commander’s Award successfully improved services and support for acquisition programs, fleet customers, and employees through process improvement tools/methodology, which resulted in reduced cost and cycle time associated with acquisition, technology and administrative processes/tasks. Vice Admiral Paul Grosklags, Commander, Naval Air Systems Command, presented the award to Team Lead, Mr. Tom Spidel (AIR-1.7, Pax River) and honored the AMS Team during a ceremony at Patuxent River Naval Air Station on Wednesday, March 14, 2018.
The Acquisition Tools AIR-1.7 team reduced duplicative data entry workload up to 30 percent and standardized data elements across multiple tools. The Command now has enterprise-wide tools that provide real-time single source acquisition and financial analytics, create an audit trail for contract deliverables, and link financial management to contract execution. These expanded capabilities save the Command millions of dollars in sustainment and labor costs. Precise Systems is incredibly proud of the work of this team in their work to “Delight the Customer” and “Deliver the Highest Quality of Service.”
