Arlington, Va., –
Disability does not mean inability and Mr. Paul S. Doyle Jr., Senior Auditor, Upstate New York Branch Office, Central Region, proved it through his work and selection as DCAA's Outstanding Employee with a Disability for fiscal year 2019. Paul was presented his award during a ceremony in the pentagon. During the ceremony, the Secretary of Defense, Dr. Mark Esper, stated “People with disabilities are unemployed at twice the rate of the national average, even though many of them have the training, skills and experience the nation needs — particularly in the science, technology, engineering and math disciplines.” Mr. Doyle demonstrates daily that he as the skills and experience to succeed in DCAA.
Mr. Doyle excels in his duties and performs a wide variety of complex audit assignments. He led a multiyear incurred cost audit from beginning to end, which included developing relevant risk assessment and adequately documenting all supporting evidence in his working papers. Throughout his assignments, he kept his management team and the customer fully informed of the audit's status. Paul’s work ethic, expertise, and willingness to help others is a model for success which we all should emulate. Paul said of the award, “It was a great honor to win the award and to be chosen to represent the Agency at the Pentagon along with the award recipients from other DoD Components. It was humbling hearing the experiences of other disabled people that work for the Department of Defense, especially those that have been wounded in combat in service to this Nation. Those are the people that really deserve to be recognized for what they have done and all that they continue to do for the United States of America.”
