"Our DKOs and entire contracting team works tirelessly in support of our customers: it is especially gratifying to know that their hard work directly results in the success of such missions like Pacific Partnership, which brings that humanitarian assistance across this theater to the people who need it the most," said Sherry Bonaiuto, NAVSUP FLC Yokosuka Far East Contracting Department, deputy director.
"This job requires a DKO to be creative and react fast to satisfy the emerging requirements to support the customer for successful mission completion in a short period of time," said Isguder.
As a DKO, I am responsible for conducting market research, developing acquisition strategies, issuing solicitations, and all pre and post award contracting functions independently, and while deployed.
I'm very enthusiastic about my job as a DKO; I love to be out conducting logistics site surveys with my customers, and I have integrated myself into their groups.
I'd love to tell you about what a typical "Day in the Life" of a DKO would be like; however, every day presents new adventures and challenges.
