Department of Defense and DCAA Awards Honor Employee

By DCAA Staff Writer

Ms. Julie George, Office Automation Assistant, Northrop Grumman Mission Systems Linthicum Resident Office, Northrop Grumman (NG) Corporate Audit Directorate was selected as DCAA's Outstanding Employee with a Disability for FY 2021 and earned a Secretary of Defense Award.

“Disabled individuals have lent talents, time, effort and ingenuity to departments and have gone above and beyond a typical workday,” stated Mr. Clarence Johnson, Director, Diversity Management Operations Center during the virtual award ceremony. “They create a better and more positive work environment for us all. Their skills and talents will continue to advance mission of DoD and the Federal workforce.”

Ms. George is an example of this. She has worked for DCAA for over 40 years. She works closely with the managers and supervisors to know deadlines and, when necessary, puts in extra time to make sure the audits get to the customer by the agree to due date. She routinely prepares, distributes, and files essential data by pay period, quarter, and fiscal year end. Last year, despite COVID restrictions, Julie maintained information technology assets to make sure computers were ready for distribution. Her daily work ethic and dedication to the DCAA mission make her a tremendous asset in her office, DCAA and DoD.
