Please pass on to Rite-Solutions’ upper Mgmt. You have a great crew and your team’s efforts do not go unnoticed by our customers or myself. Thank your guys and great job (as usual) for your leadership in supporting the below GSA award!
Please join us in congratulating the Division Newport Research, Development, Test & Evaluation (RDT&E) Network Build-Out Project Team for garnering this year's General Services Administration (GSA) Network Services Award in the Technical Excellence category. Sponsored by the GSA and Interagency Management Council, the award recognizes individuals and groups who, through their use of Federal Acquisition Services - Office of Integrated Technology Service contracts, have improved the quality, management, and cost effectiveness of telecommunication services for their agency.
The RDT&E Network Build-Out Project Team members met the challenge of providing a separate network for scientists and engineers here, an RDT&E environment, which allows continuity of network services not supported under Navy and Marine Corps Intranet. The RDT&E Network infrastructure provides the command with network services, Internet access, and external network connectivity via NUWC Division Newport wide area network. By leveraging GSA contracts for the purchase of equipment, the Team established the innovative build-out of the RDT&E network infrastructure, resulting in the migration from a single local network system to two separate networks - NMCI and RDT&E.
Team members from the Enterprise Infrastructure Branch, Code 11421, include: Ms. Kathryn Conrad; Mr. James DiPaola; Mr. David Kenney; Mr. Karl VonWinkle; and, Mr. John Trifero; and, Ms. Tracey Correll from Physical Operations, Code 115. Also recognized the efforts of support contractors Rite-Solutions and SAIC. The GSA Award will be presented at an awards luncheon during the GSA Network Services Conference in Dallas, TX, on Wednesday, 13 August 2008.-- NUWC Customer
