Reginald Evans, supply technician at Defense Logistics Agency Distribution Corpus Christi, Texas, has been selected as one of DLA Distribution’s Employees of the Quarter for fourth quarter fiscal year 2015 for his superior performance and significant support to the customer. 

According to Evans’ supervisor, Blessings Foster, Evans has sustained his superior performance as the distribution center’s inventory integrity denial coordinator since July.  His thorough research of denials resulted in over 755 inventoried locations and more than 10,000 verified assets, thereby ensuring accurate records.  His efforts resulted in DLA Distribution Corpus Christi maintaining a .18 percent denial rate, saving the distribution center nearly $320,000.  His attention to detail made certain that customer shipments were picked and ready for shipping with zero discrepancies

“Mr. Evans displays tenacity and pride in his work.  He is a consistent high performer in both quality and quantity when performing his duties and always strives for perfection in support of our Warfighters and global customers,” said Foster. 

Earlier this year, Evans was selected to assist the Inventory Action Team as first and second count coordinator.  Ultimately, he checked nearly 500 locations, counting more than 29,000 assets with only 23 inventory adjustments processed.  According to Foster, Evans’ tenacity was instrumental in DLA Distribution Corpus Christi receiving an outstanding rating during its FY15 Annual Chief Financial Officer inventory.  

Evans also assumed the duties as manager of the Inventory Integrity Branch during the month of July.  He seamlessly picked up the additional responsibilities while sustaining his other duties.  During this period, he assisted the team in researching and processing Inventory Adjustment Vouchers, completing inventory location counts, and adhoc inpections with zero discrepancies. “His attention to detail and his willingness to adhere to standards made a big impact to the Inventory Integrity Branch maintaining DLA’s overall performance rating,” said Foster.

“Mr. Evans definitely makes a substantial contribution to the continued success of DLA Distibution Corpus Christi’s Inventory Integrity Branch and the effective establishment of its relevant objectives and attainable goals. Regardless of the complexity or magnitude of task at hand, he strives to support DLA Distribution and the Warfighter,” Foster concluded.
