The Navy recognized the best of its acquisition workforce in a ceremony last month. One of the winners: the team behind the new Ocean Class research vessel. A contract for the first of the new ships was awarded last fall and the second, just a few months ago.

MacDonald leads the Ocean Class Auxiliary General Oceanographic Research Team at the Naval Sea Systems Command, which the Navy recognized with its Small Buisness Team Award at its Acquisition Excellence ceremony.

MacDonald spoke with In Depth with Francis Rose on July 19.
