Dodd, FTC team win honors from peers for superior IT achievements

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va.—Army Maj. David E. Dodd and members of the Federal Trade
Commission’s Consumer Information System Project Team last week received the honor of
their peers at the Interagency Resources Management Conference.

Dodd won the IRMCO Chief Information Officer Council’s Individual Achievement
Award for developing the Joint Network Management Program for the Defense Department.

Dodd, who works for the Army’s Command, Control, Communications and Computers
Directorate, is credited with building consensus among the military services, which led to
the funding of the Joint Communications Planning Management System.

The trade commission’s CISP Team received the Team Achievement Award for creating
a system that united federal, state and Canadian law enforcement agencies in an effort to
fight telemarketing fraud. CISP created an online system to streamline the handling of
consumer complaints and provide public warnings via the Internet.

Before, FTC handled 41,000 complaints in three years. Using the online system, it
handled 87,000 complaints in nine months.
