Mr. McAllister is the first to receive this distinction, which seeks to recognize excellence and innovation in the Army Acquisition Workforce (AAW).

Medical staff on the battlefield record and transfer critical medical data from foxhole to military treatment facilities, and thereby assure accuracy and continuity of health records for warfighters across the globe.

McAllister developed an innovative contracting strategy which resulted in a net 20-percent annual savings in FY 2015 alone. Under his direction, more than 5,000 systems were fielded to 250 Army units worldwide during this period, coming in under cost and ahead of schedule. This represents a 50% increase over FY14 in the number of MC4 systems fielded.

For more than a decade, the Army has entrusted MC4 with maintaining deployable medical recording systems. MC4 leads the way with the most widely-used, comprehensive information management medical system on the battlefield.
