The employees at the U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville are widely respected by government and industry for their expertise in numerous engineering fields and related disciplines. To prove the point, one of our long-time employees, Steve Feldman, general counsel, Office of Counsel, was featured in the May issue of the National Contract Management Association’s flagship publication, Contract Management, as a “Superstar Contracting Professional.”

The article explores the attributes, motivations and talents of a select number of superior contracting professionals in industry, government and academia. The editors selected Feldman for this designation because of his numerous books and articles on federal acquisition law that are widely used throughout the United States.

Because of Feldman’s dedication to continuous learning and personal improvement, the editors concluded that he exemplifies the qualities of a "superstar contracting professional."

Mona Neal, chief of the Huntsville Center Contracting Directorate's, Business Operations Branch agrees. She said Feldman is definitely a valued contributor to the Contracting team because he does research above and beyond the basic statues and regulations.

"Steve provides some valuable insight into what it takes to be a contracting professional superstar by including constant research into your daily routine,” Neal said. “He is definitely an example of this. His exceptional research abilities have benefitted the Contracting cadre here at Huntsville Center. He comes to the table with nuggets of information which have shed new light on a situation and helped the project delivery team to fashion a workable solution."

When asked for the key to his success, Feldman stated in the article he “always tries to step back from the regular cycle of contract reviews” to take the time to study newsletters, case summaries and journal articles on recent procurement developments.

"A superstar contracting professional is dedicated to continuous learning and always scans available sources for new knowledge. Constant research is critical to strategic success," Feldman said.
