Hero of the Month

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.

Little Rock District hosts Media Day at Arkansas levees 

Local, state and Federal officials recently attended a Media Day at the Faulkner and Perry County Levees in Conway, Ark., hosted by the Little Rock District to update the public on the status of rehabilitation work on the Faulkner County Levee and announce work has begun on the Perry County Levee.

The historic 2019 Arkansas River flood impacted hundreds of communities in Arkansas and Oklahoma. The Faulkner County levee, also known as the Lollie Levee, sustained a near breach with an approximately 200-foot-long eroded section creating a reduced level of protection to the leveed area. Permanent repairs are currently underway, with construction scheduled to be substantially complete this spring and fully complete this summer.

The entire Perry County levee system was overtopped, and the levee was breached or damaged in at least 19 locations. Repair work is underway and expected to be completed by summer 2021. To date, four of the levees in the Rehabilitation and Inspection Program have had repairs initiated or substantially completed.
