Beginning in 2002, when working in CDC's Competitive Sourcing Activity in MASO, Ms. Johnson served on an HHS committee to plan and develop guidance for implementing the Fair Act Inventory (FAIR). During the same time period, Ms. Johnson served as CDC's point of contact for competitive sourcing related to the President's Management Agenda, managing A-76 study teams and special projects.
Ms. Johnson received a Presidential Letter in 2004 for her accomplishments in CDC's competitive sourcing efforts.
