Tallahassee, FL 32317

My team learned today, Thursday, May 18, 2017 that we have been selected to be one of the several 2017 Davis Productivity Cash Award Winners.
The link to award:
The Florida Tax Watch which bestows the award describes it in the following way:
The Prudential Productivity Awards are made possible through the generosity of Prudential, as Anchor Sponsor, and the vision of the late J.E. Davis and A.D. Davis, co-founders of Winn-Dixie Stores Inc. and co-founders of Florida TaxWatch. Since 1989, the Awards program has publicly recognized and rewarded state employees and work units whose work significantly and measurably increases productivity and promotes innovation to improve the delivery of state services and save money for Florida taxpayers and businesses. Over the 28-year program, more than 16,000 nominations have been received, and awards have been given to state employees for saving or maximizing state dollars to the tune of more than $9.2 billion. 
Our team consisted of the following:
FSU ID#: 404William Sweeney, Thayumanasamy Somasundaram, Claudius Mundoma, James Stephens, Donna Trumbower, Carlos Murphy, Kyle Gower-Winter, and Rebekah Dorn
The award itself will be given on Wednesday, Jun 14, 2017 time and location to be determined.
Thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of the project which allowed us to win the prize.

Scientific Equipment Portal Presentation

Tuesday, May 16, 2017, 9:00 AM

This morning our team gave the presentation of our project Scientific Equipment Portal. We had split the presentation into five segments: project scope, why the project, back office work, web portal, and during my turn I gave the summary and semi-live demonstration of the project.

In all, we took about 15 minutes. The audience appreciated our presentation and many personally congratulated us.
