Excellence in Practice Awards 2013


The Champion Award recognizes a Lead Defense Travel Administrator (LDTA) whose wisdom, guidance, and commitment to his or her Organization DTAs (ODTAs) has made a fundamental and long-term positive impact on their travel program.

This year’s recipient is Air Force SSgt J. LeRoy for his support to the 14th Comptroller Squadron at Columbus Air Force Base, MS.  SSgt LeRoy demonstrates a strong commitment to training and mentoring his ODTAs, Authorizing Officials (AOs), and travelers through his training strategy at Columbus AFB.  In addition to providing initial and refresher training to his customers, SSgt LeRoy also conducts quarterly ODTA training that addresses issues identified in his monthly audits.  These training sessions have increased his ODTAs’ confidence and significantly increased the travel program’s compliance with DoD travel policy and Air Force DTS business rules.  SSgt LeRoy is also responsible for developing clinics for infrequent travelers to increase their confidence when entering authorizations and vouchers.  These clinics have resulted in a significant reduction in the troubleshooting workload of his ODTAs, AOs, and the Finance Customer Service Center.  Finally, SSgt LeRoy demonstrates a commitment to information and knowledge sharing.  He recently earned an Air Force Best Practice recognition for developing two SharePoint sites that quickly disseminate information to his customers and short training videos targeting travelers and AOs.  SSgt LeRoy’s efforts to improve the performance of his ODTAs demonstrate what it means to be a champion.
