James C. Reardon, chief information officer for the military health system, today announced that the Defense Medical Logistics Standards Support (DMLSS) program has been selected as one of the governments top five quality software projects by a panel of government and industry judges.
This prestigious award honors the best government software capabilities and recognizes excellence in software development. DMLSS was selected for its software development practices based upon customer value, performance, technical value, quality, and user satisfaction. This program provides automation support of reengineered medical logistics business practices and delivers a comprehensive range of materiel, equipment and facilities management information. The fully automated and integrated inventory and information management system enables the military services to meet their 21st century medical logistics needs.
The DMLSS program office and the joint medical logistics functional development center share this honor and recognition for excellence in their software development business practices, and that recognition is consistently echoed by satisfied customers and users of the DMLSS suite of software products, said Reardon.
