Two NASA Lewis Research Center Employees Receive NASA Procurement Awards

Cleveland, OH -- NASA Assistant Administrator for Procurement Don G. Bush named Lewis employees Nancy K. Horton and Kenneth A. DeLaat recipients of awards at the annual Agency-wide Procurement Awards Program.

There were eight award categories open to all NASA procurement professionals; a total of 47 nominations were received for the 8 awards. The winners represent the best in the Agency in their specific positions.

Nancy K. Horton, Procurement Analyst of the Year for 1992. Horton was recognized for leading the review of contractors' purchasing procedures to ensure that the contractors pay reasonable prices for government-reimbursable items and for improving internal working relationships at the Center that had impeded effective monitoring of millions of dollars of government property loaned to contractors.

Horton has worked at Lewis since 1980 and currently works in the Management Support Branch. She is a resident of University Heights, Ohio.

Kenneth A. DeLaat, Procurement Supervisor of the Year for 1992. DeLaat serves as chief of the Contract Support Branch. His department is responsible for analyzing contractor proposals to determine whether proposed prices are reasonable and for processing research grants for colleges and universities. This department had a significant increase in productivity over the past year due to automation of routine and repetitive processing steps. As a result of the automation his staff was able to accomplish more work in less time. DeLaat has worked at Lewis since 1979. He is a resident of Seville, Ohio.
