In July 2004, JLMI was awarded a contract to provide administrative support to the Western Area Power
Administration (WAPA) Desert Southwest (DSW) Region located in Phoenix, Arizona. Our personnel pro-
vide a myriad of support to WAPA to include supporting Assistant Regional Managers, Department Manag-
ers and staff with meeting schedules, travel, call screening, filing, and clerical.

For the past three years, our team of proven professionals have supported WAPA in a superb manner. Ms.
Bonnie McBride, Ms. Sylvia Macfarlane, Ms. Danielle Smith, and Ms. DC Cox joined the JLMI Team at the
start of the contract and everyone continues to provide exceptional support. Ms. Bernadette Fox, Ms. Deb-
orah Marcotte, Ms. Deborah McCarthy, Ms. Renee Santagata, Ms. Sassy Tredway, and Ms. Denise Kelley
round out our team of professionals supporting this effort.

Remarks from The President
I am honored to have been selected by Leadership Metro Richmond (LMR) to participate in their annual
Leadership forum.

LMR is a 26 year old nonprofit leadership development and community service program that seeks to har-
ness the shared passion of emerging and established leaders to serve the community.

64 Business Executives were chosen to participate in LMR’s fall 2007-08 class. The 10 month course
started in September. 1500 Central Virginians have participated in the leadership-development program
since it was established 27 years ago. This year’s class is among the largest.

“I look forward with high expectation to this very rewarding challenge.”

Since I last addressed you via the newsletter, I must say that Gladys does not have to lead me around the
building any longer. My comfort level with the environment has increased tremendously. The JLMI Corpo-
rate staff has been very understanding and patient with me during the transition.

I have visited several of the offsite locations where JLMI employees work and I must confess that I have
only met professional, enthusiastic and dedicated men and women who represent the company in an out-
standing manner. I have not met all the offsite employees, however; this is my goal in the very near future.
To the men and women that I have met, I want to personally thank each and everyone of you for your dedi-
cation and professionalism and I encourage all of you to keep up the good work.

My thanks to all of you who have participated in “All Hands” meetings, which is a forum whereas everyone
can communicate with the corporate staff and the staff can pass along valuable information. In other
words, it is a family gathering once a quarter. Unfortunately, our “All Hands” meetings are conducted tele-
phonically, my ultimate goal is to use Video Teleconferencing capability. As the company continues to
move forward, this capability will be an obtainable goal at some point in the future.

We are in the process of changing the format of the “All Hands” meetings. Gladys will be providing the
changes to everyone via email before our next meeting.

The company is continuing to grow at a moderate rate and in many instances, growth will bring about tur-
bulence in an organization. We have encountered a 2% turnover in personnel in the last five months.
Considering all factors, this is a low turnover rate. JLMI’s goal is to keep personnel turnover as low as
possible. We want to ensure that our employees are being treated fairly and enjoy working for JLMI.

Keep the team spirit, stay focused on your mission and continue to provide our customers 100% satisfac-
tion at all times. Remember that “a satisfied customer generates repeat business.”

JLMI’s Multi-Functional Survey Team

As the Army moves to embrace multi-functional systems and Military Occupational Specialties, so too has
the PM Logistics Information Systems and JLMI. By developing a team of multi-functional system experts,
the PM will save money and JLMI will benefit by developing the expertise the Army will require as it imple-
ments the Enterprise Resource Planning System under the GCSS-Army program.

Ms. Dorothy Walton heads the multi-functional JLMI team consisting of Rob Cerveny, Diane Golden, Den-
nis Robertson, Armando Gonzales and Roger Congleton. Today, this team is responsible for performing
the pre-site surveys for PBUSE, SAMS-E and ULLS-A (E). In the near future, they will also be responsible
for the equipment accountability function now done by Program Executive Office Enterprise Information
System (PEO-EIS) personnel during site surveys.

We envision that this team will grow over time in size and experience benefiting both the team members
and JLMI.


JLMI has a contract with the Quartermaster Center and School to supply ULLS-G operators to support
their “The Army Maintenance Management System (TAMMS) operations.” ULLS-G was recently replaced
by SAMS-E and our personnel are now flawlessly operating the new SAMS-E System.

This team is headed by Kevin Davis and consists of Conchita Sellers and Ervin Felton. The team supports
the 23rd Quartermaster Brigade (Bde) which consists of the US Marine Corps Detachment, the Aerial De-
livery Field Service Department, the Army Center of Excellence-Subsistence, The Logistics Training De-
partment, The Mortuary Affairs Center and the Petroleum and Water Department. The ULLS-G Team pro-
vides not only SAMS-E operations but also provides the oversight and guidance for the entire maintenance
mission to improve organizational effectiveness while maintaining 10/20 standards for the Bde’s equipment.

The diversity of the equipment the team is responsible for makes this a very challenging mission since it
ranges from vehicles, trailers and forklifts to peculiar POL equipment and arms room requirements. Our
team has a proven record of success.
