I am pleased to announce that two members of the EIS team have been named Federal Computer Week’s Rising Stars. Ms. Tara Miner from Project Manager General Fund Enterprise Business System (PM GFEBS) and CPT Shayla Parker from Product Director Transportation Information Systems (PD TIS) have been recognized as outstanding up-and-comers in the federal IT community for 2012.

Sponsored by Federal Computer Week (FCW) magazine, the Rising Star awards honor employees under 40 who have gone above and beyond their job descriptions to make an impact, with special attention on potential to grow into more responsibility within their organizations and in the IT community at large. The full list of 2012 Rising Stars will be published in Federal Computer Week and on their website in August. Winners also will be recognized at a gala hosted by Government Computer News, a sister to FCW publication, in October 2012.

Ms. Miner was recognized for her outstanding contributions to the GFEBS program. As a Program Analyst with GFEBS, Tara worked to secure full funding for GFEBS, as well as assisting in the establishment of a new product director under the GFEBS program. Her efforts successfully contributed to smooth passage through the acquisition process for the GFEBS program, including the successful achievement of the full deployment decision earlier this summer.

CPT Parker received this distinction for leading the successful implementation of the Transportation Coordinators’ – Automated Information for Movements System II (TC-AIMS II) in Afghanistan, Iraq and Kuwait. Under her direction, the use of TIS system in Southwest Asia has expanded to include all unit movements – deployments and re-deployments, retrograde of equipment from theater and commercial and military surface transportation coordination and control; the successful retirement of a non-program of record replaced by TC-AIMS II; and the development and implementation of additional TC-AIMS II functionality that has greatly improved In-Transit Visibility in theater.

Please join me in congratulating these deserving award winners as well as all the nominees for their outstanding contributions to the mission.
