Small Business Procurement Recognized

Rear Adm. Bruce A. Doll and Jerome K. Maultsby present award
On Jan. 20, Rear Adm. Bruce A. Doll, director of the Defense Health Agency's Directorate for Research, Development and Acquisition and deputy commander of the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, and Jerome K. Maultsby, associate director with the USAMRMC and Fort Detrick Office of Small Business Programs, distributed plaques to USAMRMC and Fort Detrick organizations recognizing their contributions in helping the command meet its small business goals in fiscal year 2014. The USAMRMC exceeded targets in the categories of small business, small disadvantaged business, women-owned small business and service disabled veteran owned businesses. In a letter from Maj. Gen. Brian Lein, commanding general of the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command and Fort Detrick, to award recipients, Lein noted that the organizations' achievements were "unprecedented" given the drop in procurement actions and reduced funding during the fiscal year. Doll and Maultsby echoed this sentiment in their remarks, saying that each organization contributed to the command's collective efforts to provide opportunities for small businesses which, in turn, helps advance military medicine.
