NAVSEA engineering director retires after 33 years

Dianne Tatham Kaskey, the Navy's director of operations for the warfare systems engineering directorate at the Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington, will retire tomorrow after 33 years of federal service.

At NAVSEA, Kaskey said, she wore many hats, from office manager and training consultant to the point of contact for government regulations and IT systems manager.

Kaskey managed her directorate's portion of the Workforce Administration Management Office personnel system, which tracks employees' locations, grade levels and schedules for grade increases. The directorate also uses the Modern Defense Civilian Personnel Data System, she said.

A one-time FBI secretary for security and maintenance, Kaskey has held various positions with the Navy since May 1978.

She is moving to western North Carolina for family reasons and said she is considering government consulting work through a contractor.

The Navy has not named Kaskey's replacement.

The warfare systems engineering directorate designs, builds and acquires ships and certifies the systems that go on ships.
