Department of Defense news release (June 15, 2006): Defense Department presents Value Engineering Achievement Awards.

Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics Ken Krieg presented the annual Department of Defense Value Engineering Achievement Awards during a ceremony at the Pentagon June 15.

Value Engineering is a systematic process of function analysis to identify actions that reduce cost, increase quality, and improve mission capabilities across the entire spectrum of DoD systems, processes, and organizations. 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 2005, 3,047 in-house Value Engineering Proposals and contractor-initiated Value Engineering Change Proposals were accepted with projected savings/cost avoidance in excess of $924 million.

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: (1) program/project, (2) individual, (3) team, (4) organization, and (5) contractor.
