Department of Defense News Release (March 7, 2007): Department of Defense announces Value Engineering Achievement award winners.
The Department of Defense Value Engineering Program continues to be an incentive for government and our industry counterparts to improve the joint value proposition by promoting innovation and creativity. These innovative proposals seek best value solutions as part of a successful business relationship.
During fiscal 2006, 3,473 in-house value engineering proposals and contractor-initiated value engineering change proposals were accepted with projected savings/cost avoidance in excess of $1.6 billion.
The Value Engineering Awards Program is a highly visible acknowledgment of exemplary achievements and encourages additional projects to improve in-house and contractor productivity. Award winners from each DoD component were eligible for selection in the following five categories: program/project, individual, team, organization, and contractor.
