Regional site personnel honored for performance

By Tim Hoyle DLA Disposition Services

Leaders from the Defense Logistics Agency Disposition Services South-East took time to reinforce part of the DLA Strategic Plan during the region’s tenth annual Leadership Training Seminar.

The Strategic Plan includes a People and Culture Plan that lists Perform and Reward as Objective 6 of the Culture portion of the plan. The objective seeks to sustain a results-oriented performance culture that links performance and recognition to organizational goals and performance-based actions. Three of DLA Disposition Services field sites were recognized at the leadership event as “Best Sites in DSD South-East.”  Their staffs were rewarded for their performance as shown in the final Dynamic Operating Plan data for fiscal 2019 based on sites with the lowest customer wait time, highest on the shelf rate and best on board effectiveness, plus their improvement in all three of those areas from the previous year. Also considered were the sites with most improvement in reducing un-processed receipts from fiscal 2018.

“If you were 1st, 2nd or 3rd in that category then it was worth 3, 2 or 1 points,” said South-East Deputy Director Audrey Weber. “The best site was the one with the most points.”

Warner Robins, Georgia, was selected as the first place site; Camp Lejeune’s site in North Carolina was second; and Anniston, Alabama, took third place. Other noteworthy sites in those categories included the Fort Bragg site (Most Improved on the Shelf rate), the Eglin Air Force Base site (2nd best improved Customer Wait Time), and Jacksonville, Florida (achieving 95% on an internal environmental audit).

The field activities weren’t the only ones recognized, also identified were the South-East field offices that issued the items to reutilization, transfer or donation customers with the “Highest RTD Acquisition Value” as Albany, Georgia ($21.6 million); Fort Campbell, Kentucky ($14.7 million), and Fort Stewart, Georgia ($9 million).
