In August, Army Materiel Command (AMC) named Ms. Lisa DaPonte, functional integration branch lead, Logistics Modernization Program (LMP), as one of its Louis Dellamonica Award recipients for Outstanding AMC Personnel of the Year for 2016. This award recognizes outstanding accomplishments that have significantly contributed to AMC’s mission to develop and deliver materiel readiness solutions to U.S. warfighters. Ms. DaPonte was recognized for her significant contributions to LMP sustainment, providing support to the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology’s Total Package Fielding (TPF) Concept of Operations (CONOPS) and implementing LMP Increment 2.

For sustainment, Ms. DaPonte helped prioritize and execute hundreds of change requests to enhance LMP, as well as address audit readiness and compliance requirements to meet the DOD auditability mandate. Ms. DaPonte also provided critical inputs to assist the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Policy and Logistics to publish the TPF CONOPS and played an integral role in completing the successful pilot program at Fort Bliss, Texas, to hand off M88 recovery vehicles from LMP to Global Combat Support System – Army using the LMP TPF distribution process.

To reach Increment 2 full fielding in May 2016, she provided critical support to the teams that cleansed and migrated over seven million data records and completed more than 7,000 test cases. Additionally, she helped establish the functionality architecture to link Automatic Identification Technology to LMP, which will reduce some ammunition plants’ manual efforts, resulting in costs savings starting in fiscal year 2016 of $4.85 million and continuing annually at $9.7 million (projected to fiscal year 2026).

Ms. DaPonte’s knowledge of AMC business operations, understanding of LMP and strong relationships with dozens of customer and partner organizations contributed to AMC’s mission success in 2016 and earned her this prestigious recognition. Congratulations Ms. DaPonte!
