Two NAVSUP employees selected for SECNAV Civilian Fellowship Program in Financial Management.
"I'm especially proud that NAVSUP Headquarters and NAVICP, one of our field activities, have extraordinary individuals willing to take on this challenge and bring their knowledge back to us," said John C. Goodhart, NAVSUP executive director. "Fellowships of this type prepare our employees for future leadership roles and strengthen our organization."
The NCFPFM provides an opportunity for high-potential employees to participate in an intensive program of advanced study in the area of financial management for one academic year at the graduate level. The program enhances the capabilities of its participants and benefits the Department of the Navy.
"Mr. Crackett has demonstrated exceptional leadership in the area of financial management," said CAPT James Davis, Comptroller, NAVICP. Crackett has worked for the NAVICP for more than 13 years. In his current position he is responsible for operation of financial systems for operating budget tracking and execution; staffing strategy and position management; travel policy formulation and execution; travel card policy and execution; and payroll administration. He has a bachelor's degree from Wilkes College, Wilkes-Barre, Pa., and is currently pursuing a master's degree.
"I have begun pursuing a Master of Business Administration degree [at Wilkes College] ... to supplement what I have learned in the workplace. I believe this combination will make me a more valuable asset to both the Office of the Comptroller and the Naval Inventory Control Point," Crackett said.
CAPT Davis noted, "The fellowship will provide Mr. Crackett with knowledge of the latest strategic human capital management theories from the private sector that will be invaluable to NAVICP."
Davis currently serves as a financial analyst for the Certified Financial Officers reporting initiative, including the audited financial statements effort. "Ryan is a key member of NAVSUP's enterprise financial management team for Navy Working Capital Fund Supply Management," said David Buller, director, Navy Working Capital Fund (NWCF) Material Division, NAVSUP Headquarters' Comptroller Office. In his current position Davis serves as the NAVSUP Comptroller Department point of contact on all financially significant audits where he has resolved issues affecting NWCF undistributed disbursements and collections. Additionally, he analyzes stock-in-transit data, providing monthly status reports with execution data.
"The opportunity to earn a graduate degree ... will provide Davis with the skills and knowledge necessary to lead this organization and will benefit NAVSUP Headquarters immensely," Buller added. Davis holds a bachelor's degree from Mount Aloysius College, Cresson, Pa., and is an American Society of Military Comptrollers certified defense financial manager.
Under the fellowship program, Davis plans to attend Shippensburg University, Shippensburg, Pa., to obtain his master's degree. "An MBA degree will provide critical knowledge for application in my current position, as well as any future opportunities," he said.
