FCW : October 30, 2013
28 October 30, 2013 FCW.COM "And she does it all with a smile on her face," said Lt. Col. Guy DeWees, a branch chief in the Army CIO s of ce. But one of the most remarkable things about Dalton is the fact that she graduated only two years ago from the Army Department s Civil- ian Career Intern Program. "The intern program positioned me to have that opportunity to be in the room early on as senior leadership discussed the strategic IT issues affecting the Army," she said. "It allowed me to experi- ence rsthand how the issues are discussed and how it s transpar- ent down to the action of cer level. One of larger things I took from that, now being in the action of cer role, is that it allowed me to articulate issues in how the senior leadership wants them presented." Dalton s responsibilities today approach the level of a deputy, DeWees said. "Particularly notable is the fact that she is relatively new to the Army and she s operating at such a high level, impacting what happens throughout the Army," DeWees said. "It s remarkable to have a relatively young govern- ment employee with that kind of responsibility. The fact that she s excelling and understands not only the requirements but the poli- tics behind working in the [Army Department] staff element makes her exceptional." --- Amber Corrin Carolyn Harvey Rising Star Carolyn Harvey is already working with big money. As a senior project manager for the General Services Administra- tion s Federal Systems Integration and Management Center, Harvey manages a Department of Housing and Urban Development portfolio valued at more than $100 million. Chris Hamm, deputy director of FEDSIM, said Harvey was asked to step up from her junior project manager role on short notice and has managed the portfolio with "skill and grit." Harvey said she not only thrives in the face of challenges, but also seeks them out. "No day is the same!" she responded when asked about her favorite part of the job. "In the Of ce of Assisted Acquisition Services, we seek to meet a cli- ent agency s IT needs within the restrictions of acquisition regula- tions. With both factors constantly changing, we face new challenges and analyze creative solutions every day." In the rst six months in her new role, Harvey was able to secure six IT contracts for HUD and saved the agency $7 million through careful nancial and con- tract management. "If we did not get these certain contracts awarded in a very small time frame, it would ve resulted in a loss of funds at Housing and Urban Development, as well as an end of services that are really mission-critical services," she told FCW. Harvey, who joined GSA in 2009 after a short stint in the private sector, said FEDSIM offers a spe- cial challenge because it entails working on pre-contract work, contract management and all the steps in between. "My key to success was relying on the experience of others and having the con dence and the hard work to learn quickly," she said. --- Reid Davenport Dan P. Houston Jr. There is no such thing as a normal day when you re the guy respon- sible for managing database and storage services at a major federal agency. So says Dan Houston, who over- sees 3,300 databases, 400 applica- tions and all 22 petabytes (and counting) of data collected by the U.S. Postal Service, mainly from its public-facing website and mail- tracking system. Whether he is implementing the latest version of Oracle on hun- dreds of systems or supporting new business projects for custom- ers, Houston faces new challenges almost daily.
