The who’s who of federal acquisition

By Julia Ziegler
Federal News Radio

Federal News Radio wanted to know, who are the people in government making a real difference when it comes to acquisition? Who are the rock stars that may or may not be getting the credit they deserve for the extraordinary work they do on a daily basis?

So, we asked the experts — our readers and listeners — to nominate those people you thought deserved the most credit.

Register for the Ask the CIO Chat with Andy Ozment of the Homeland Security Department on Oct. 11, at 1:30 p.m.

Below are two lists compiled based on your nominations and edited by Federal News Radio, as part of the special series Inside the World’s Biggest Buyer.

The first — acquisition professionals you may already know due to their high-level positions or length of service in government.

The second — the federal employees who may fly under the radar a bit more, but still deserve recognition for the exceptional work they do.

The quotes defining each finalist come from those who nominated them.
