DISA execs receive Presidential Rank awards

Two senior executive service members at the Defense Information Systems Agency have won Presidential Rank Awards for 2006.

Rebecca Harris, Net-Centric Enterprise Services program director for DISA, and Alfred Rivera, director of computing services, both won Meritorious Executive awards. According to a DISA release, these awards are only given to five percent of the governmentwide executive workforce.

Harris was noted for leading the transformation of DISA's agency engineering processes during DOD's movement to net-centric warfare. She helped explore alternative engineering management concepts and technologies supporting DISA's move from a systems-based culture to a services-based agency.

Rivera was credited for revolutionizing Defense data center operations and combat support computing. He restructured the technical and business operations of all the Defense Enterprise Computing Centers (DECCs), saving DOD millions of dollars in computing costs, according to the release.
