“A Better Return on Investment”

The folks at Georgia’s Fort Stewart Army post think they do a good job. Fact is, they think their work is good enough that it qualifies for a 2013 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. Those are those annual federal-government salutes designed to recognize top-flight performance of U.S.-based organizations, named for the late Reagan Administration Department of Commerce secretary.

“This program helps FS/HAAF [Fort Stewart/Hunter Army Air Field] become better stewards of the taxpayers money and provides a better return on investment,” the post says. “It is these types of award competitions and improvements to our processes that set FS/HAAF apart from the rest and have a positive impact in these times of sequestration, budget cuts, and possible Base Realignment and Closure Actions (BRAC).”

And that’s why Fort Stewart paid $18,000 last week to apply for it.
