Brian Hutchison is the Chief of the Business Oversight Branch for the Tulsa District’s Contracting Division. He is recognized for coordinating across the Enterprise to obtain necessary funding to provide a Virtual Federal Acquisition Regulations Bootcamp Training opportunity for 25 newly-hired Southwestern Division acquisition professionals.
As a result of Hutchison’s forethought, planning and coordination efforts, the 25 participants were equipped with valuable training that thoroughly examined the FAR, and provided vital tools and techniques to illustrate the most-effective way to independently research, interpret and apply the FAR in support of Mission requirements. The FAR Bootcamp Training also provided various methods for applying critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
Hutchison’s ability to identify an opportunity to provide this critical training resulted in a tremendous outpour of positive feedback from participants across Southwestern Division, who were educated on the use of the FAR as a tool for accomplishing the mission, rather than an obstacle to overcome. The invaluable lessons provided during the training sought to build the Division’s intern workforce, while simultaneously ensuring a highly proficient workforce is prepared to provide viable and reliable solutions to our nation’s toughest challenges.
Hutchison’s efforts and continual support of our acquisition workforce, along with his superior management, technical expertise and commitment to the Mission have been a tremendous asset and heavily relied upon across the Southwestern Division.
Thanks to his leadership and dedication he has inspired a culture of Excellence and Partnership.
