“He ensured that the concept of maintenance including preventative and corrective maintenance translated to all members of the squadron to have a common understanding of how preventative and corrective maintenance is applied. He advised the Finance cell to close unnecessary duplicates and commitments that have failed or ran its course. This resulted in a $46000 deficit to a $38000 surplus of operation and maintenance funds to better the squadron before the end of the fiscal year and to reflect a more accurate report for the Commanding Officer.”
