Jerry Massee, a member of the Los Alamos Field Office Cyber Security Team, recently earned recognition as New Mexico Federal Employee of the Year by the New Mexico Federal Executive Board.
Massee provides oversight of the Information Technology and Records Management programs at Los Alamos National Laboratory. The two programs account for $250-$300 million of the lab’s $2.1 billion annual budget. As the local interface with NNSA’s Headquarters IT office, Massee spearheaded discussions with the Department of Energy regarding the impact that changes in IT requirements would have on LANL. The dialogue resulted in an alternative solution that saved the lab several million dollars and minimized adverse impacts to major software upgrades. The solution also led to significant savings for other contractors across the NNSA enterprise.
