Eric Nelson, Lilli Segre, Amanda Carroll, Amanda Porter, Lisè Matthews, Kathy Mayeda, Amy Weich, Tracy Hough, and Joanne Krumel received a 2018 Bronze Medal Group Award for a year-long effort to develop, implement, and optimize a new inter-linked project planning and financial tracking system that significantly improved efficiency at minimal cost, improved project management and accountability, and provided near real-time updates to project financial status, benefiting both NTIA and the Federal Agencies and industry partners whose complex telecommunication challenges ITS helps to resolve.
