3rd annual USD(AT & L) Workforce Development Awards: Finley honors five teams at PEO/SYSCOM Commanders' Conference luncheon on Nov. 7, 2006.

On Nov. 7, 2006, Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition and Technology) James I. Finley (below, second from left) presented the DoD AT & L Workforce Development Awards to five outstanding organizations during the fall 2006 Program Executive Officer/Systems Command Commanders' Conference luncheon held at Fort Belvoir, Va. Acting Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology and Logistics) Michael Wynne authorized the AT & L Workforce Development Awards in May 2004 as an annual event designed to recognize field organizations that have made a profound and lasting contribution to career-long learning and development of their employees. The award program also serves to capture best practices for other organizations to adopt.

Finley said that the workforce awards, now in their third year, are in direct support of the USD(AT & L)'s No. 1 goal: a High Performing, Agile, and Ethical Workforce. Fifteen field organizations, he noted, submitted applications and were carefully considered for this year's awards.

"I'd like to commend all 15 of the organizations that submitted applications," Finley said. "The sharing of your best practices will help us as we work forward toward our goal of a high performing, agile, and ethical workforce."

Finley stated that the five winning AT & L organizations serve as outstanding examples of "the very best in workforce development and practices."

Their efforts," he concluded, "reflect the highest levels in human capital innovation that we should all strive to emulate."
