PEO EIS has a long track record of winners for this prestigious award and 2013 was no exception. Mr. Wiltsie and COL Flanders will be honored at the gala on March 20 at the Grand Hyatt in Washington, D.C.

Mr. Wiltsie was recognized for his strong commitment to rapidly deliver cost-effective, intuitive IT capabilities resulting in improved technology for Soldiers, better visibility for decision makers and collaborative working relationships across the department as well as industry. His efforts to encourage cost-conscious development, to improve communication, and to utilize commercial solutions were key factors in the award consideration.

COL Flanders’ award was based on his tireless dedication to the mission, his careful consideration of the budget in a dynamic fiscal environment, and above all, his ability to meet Soldiers’ needs today while anticipating the requirements of tomorrow. COL Flanders has successfully applied a Soldier’s understanding of logistics to the acquisition process, leading to the successful adoption of transformational capabilities by the Army logistics community.

This year’s winners included 75 from the federal government, 22 from industry, two from academia, and one from state government. The federal government honorees spanned 56 civilian agencies, 15 from defense sector and four from Capitol Hill. These individuals represent a wide range of accomplishments, such as guarding against the next wave of cyberattacks and deploying mission-driven big data projects. Profiles of all winners will appear in the March 30 print issue of FCW magazine and in mid-March in the online version at
