By Billy Cody, CHESS Public Affairs

The Computer Hardware, Enterprise Software and Solutions (CHESS) team bid farewell to Ms. Sammi Foong on June 9, 2016, at Burton’s Grill in Alexandria, VA. Mr. Tom Neff, Project Director for Enterprise Services and former Product Lead (PL) of CHESS, awarded a director’s coin and meritorious plaque to Ms. Foong for her dedicated service to CHESS.

Ms. Foong served as Deputy Product Lead at CHESS for more than three years, providing management and leadership in support of the PL. As Deputy PL, she oversaw day-to-day operations and activities essential to providing flexible procurement strategy for Army users procuring IT hardware, software, and services. Ms. Foong was also instrumental in expanding CHESS’s training and outreach efforts and developing its public affairs strategy.

“Her ability to forge effective partnerships with industry, the Army CIO/G-6 and Army Contracting Command was instrumental in ensuring CHESS was able to support the Soldier with the solution they needed, when they needed it,” Mr. Neff read from the plaque. “Sammi's commitment to excellence set the standard for the entire CHESS team to emulate. Her professionalism and unwavering commitment reflect great credit upon herself, PEO Enterprise Information Systems and the United States Army.”

Ms. Foong will continue her service in the PEO EIS family as PL of Force Management Systems (FMS) where she succeeds Dr. David Powers, who retired in March 2016.
