Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast announced its calendar year 2015 Employee and Supervisor of the Year awards March 30 at its Headquarters offices in Jacksonville, Florida.

NAVFAC Southeast named Allison Blount, acquisition specialist from Resident Officer in Charge of Construction (ROICC) Charleston, S.C., the Employee of the Year 2015 Tier II (GS12 and above).

"Allie has become the face of one of NAVFAC Southeast's single largest MILCON (military construction) projects," said ROICC Charleston, Lcdr. Scott Beyer. "She was hand selected to administer a massive four plus year $157 million contract for the extremely sensitive Navy nuclear propulsion program."

Blount's performance exceeded all expectations. Her willingness to accomplish the mission was noted by both the customer and the contractor. Her efforts are always backed by regulation, good ethics and customer service, according to Beyer.
