DOD's Deidre Lee receives service honor

The Professional Services Council has awarded Deidre Lee, director of Defense procurement and acquisition policy, with its highest service honor: the Marc S. Ross Award.

The council presents the award annually to a government official who demonstrates leadership, a commitment to partnership and ethical standards. It is named in honor of the former chief executive officer of technology vendor Veda Inc.

'There is little question that Dee Lee epitomizes the essence of public service embodied in this award,' said Joseph Kampf, CEO of Anteon International Corp. of Fairfax, Va., and the council's chairman. 'Throughout her distinguished career, she has demonstrated an unyielding commitment to excellence, innovation and partnerships between our government and the private sector.'

Most recently, Lee took a temporary leave from her DOD post to advise the U.S.-led Coalition Provisional Authority on acquisition policies for rebuilding Iraq [see GCN story].

Previous award winners include Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va.), comptroller general David M. Walker and Sen. John Warner (R-Va.).
