E-GOV CONFERENCE HONORS TWO DOD IT PROGRAMS
The Department of Defense announced that two of its premire

the E-Gov 2002 Conference at the Washington Convention Center
Medical Logistics Standard Support Program
Medical Logistics Standard Support (DMLSS) Program received the
2002 "Accenture and MIT Digital Government Award" in the Federal
Innovator Category. Accenture and the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology recognized government and university programs that
demonstrate the innovative use of web-enabled technology to
increase effectiveness and produce tangible results in the
delivery of products and services.
The DMLSS Program Office, managed by Col. Dan Magee, provides
materiel, facility, equipment and technology management
capabilities, employing state-of-the-art electronic commerce,
hand-held wireless remote and web-enabled technology to achieve
a new standard in medical logistics.
"DMLSS has accomplished a complete reengineering of the $2.5B
medical logistics supply chain through the use of electronic
commerce," said Dr. William Winkenwerder Jr., the assistant
secretary of Defense for Health Affairs. "This award recognizes
the tremendous capability of the Military Health System and the
talented professionals who strive daily to improve all programs
and processes to ensure the highest quality care for our men and
women in uniform."
Leading-edge electronic commerce solutions have radically
transformed the distribution of medical supplies to both
military hospitals and deploying forces; they serve as models
for the entire federal government. DoD medical users worldwide
now have at their fingertips a fully automated and integrated
inventory and an information management system ready to meet
their medical logistics needs to support the military services
