WASHINGTON, DC -- The U.S. General Services Administration presented its first Miles Romney Achievement Award for Innovation in Personal Property to the Department of Defense's Defense Reutilization and Marketing Service (DRMS).

The DRMS team--Scott Riddle, Bob Fedyski, Julia Karns, Rod Moskun, Michael Garrahan, Mary Smith, and Mark Vincent--was recognized for developing a web page that allows DRMS to manage its inventory more effectively, maximize reuse of excess property, and make excess property the first source of supply in the DOD. The web page includes their entire worldwide property inventory.

GSA's Deputy Administrator Thurman Davis and GSA's Deputy Associate Administrator for Transportation and Personal Property Rebecca Rhodes presented the award at a ceremony at the Old Executive Office Building's Indian Treaty Room in February. Romney's wife and daughters were in attendance.

The award was sponsored by GSA's Office of Transportation and Personal Property, Office of Governmentwide Policy. It was named for Miles Romney who was widely recognized for his work with GSA in property management. The award recognizes Federal agencies for innovative, cost-effective and/or timesaving practices in personal property.

Other agencies who submitted entries were National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Department of Health and Human Services, and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
