Department of defense news release (March 23, 2004): standardization program presents annual achievement awards.

Four individuals and three teams have received awards from the Defense Standardization Program Office (DSPO) for outstanding contributions to the Department of Defense last fiscal year. The awards were presented March 16, during a ceremony at The National Conference Center, Lansdowne, Va.

Since 1987, DSPO has recognized individuals and organizations that have effected significant improvements in quality, reliability, readiness, cost reduction, and interoperability through standardization. The DSP mission is to identify, influence, develop, manage, and provide access to standardization processes, products, and services for warfighters and the acquisition and logistics communities. In addition, the program promotes interoperability and assists in reducing total ownership cost and in sustaining readiness.

Following are the Defense Standardization Program award recipients for 2003:
