2009 Defense Message System (DMS) Service/Agency Excellence Award

By DCMS Log -- Guest Post by Mr. Steven Wolf, Chief, Coast Guard Telecommunications Systems Infrastructure Division Commandant (CG-642)

Communications Area Master Station Pacific (CAMSPAC) was the Coast Guard recipient of the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) 2009 Defense Message System (DMS) Service/Agency Excellence Award. The award was scheduled to be presented at the 2010 DISA Customer Partnership Conference in Nashville on 3 May, but major flooding of the Cumberland River resulted in the cancellation of the conference. Instead, Mr. Steve Wolf (CG-642), DMS Program Manager, presented the award plaque to the station and crew of CAMSPAC on 26 August 2010.

The award citation reads: The DMS Award of Excellence is presented to the U.S. Coast Guard Communications Area Master Station (CAMS) Pacific for exemplifying professionalism, dedication, diligence and a high degree of technical competence as they accomplished essential mission critical goals on the path to fully implement DMS in the Coast Guard and the Department of Homeland Security. Their work as one of the Coast Guard's premiere service providers for DMS services, most especially as a key node in providing key intelligence data to the Intelligence Coordination Center via DMS, was key to the Coast Guard's ability to effectively and agilely perform its missions. CAMSPAC maintained a better than 99% Coast Guard DMS Component Site Availability rating for 2009 while maintaining a consistently low Non-Delivery Notice (NDN) percentage.

Congratulations to the station and crew of CAMSPAC for a job well done. Bravo Zulu!
