S. Army Kwajalein Atoll, Space and Missile Defense Command / Army Strategic Command (SMDC/ARSTRATCOM) since December 28, 2009.
Mr. Huff advised the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Commander in all areas of law enforcement, security, intelligence and emergency services for a community of approximately 3,000 U.S. military, DA Civilians, contractors, and RMI employees and families on a $4 billion national test range in the Republic of the Marshall Islands.
Mr. Huff coordinated the operation of command and control in the name of the Installation Commander in areas of training, administration, supply, public relations, resource management, inspections, investigations, discipline and liaison with the US Ambassador to the Marshall Islands and higher headquarters.
Mr. Huff provided AT/FP oversight for the employment of active and passive security measures designed to protect US Army Kwajalein Atoll service members, civilian employees, family members, facilities, and equipment in all locations and situations while directly contributing to the process of conducting threat assessments, criticality assessments, vulnerability assessments or other force protection surveys to identify specific vulnerabilities of the installation, and command inspections.
Mr. Huff reviewed operating practices and activities to ensure compliance with installation directives and the integration of the installation AT/FP program to guarantee compliance with DoD, PACOM, USARPAC, and SMDC plans, policies and directives, and the US Army Emergency Management and SMDC exercise/contingency deployment support plans.
Mr. Huff managed over 50 support personnel in various military ranks and civilian grade covering diverse specialties and exercised significant responsibilities in dealing with foreign and diplomatic officials of other units and nations. As the DES COTR/COR, Mr Huff ensured the DES contractors performed technical requirements of the contract in accordance with the contract terms, conditions and specifications with emphasis placed on quality provisions, for both adherences to the contract provisions and to the contractor’s own quality control program.
He documented Quality Assurance and performed follow on inspections to verify the contractor corrected all deficiencies while coordinating site entry for contractor personnel, and insuring that Government-Furnished Property (GFP) is available when required. Mr. Huff was registered in Wide Area Work Flow (WAWF) to electronically sign for the receipt of goods and/or services and maintained records to sufficiently describe the performance of duties as a COTR during the life of the contract.
