I was responsible for managing the contract of the prime contractor and its subcontractors as it pertains to all contractual requirements associated with the project.

I was responsible for vetting subcontractor documentation as it pertains to a subcontractor and prior to the subcontracts being approved by Southern Company and all subsequent change order requests.

Invensys Operations Management/Scnieder
Supply Chain Sr. Commerical Manager

   Jan 2012
— Oct 2012

This position had me responsible for $40m in contracts for the provision of Independent Verification and Validation of software being installed in Instrumentation and control equipment. This equipment is being installed at eight nuclear reactors located at three different project sites in China. The majority of these contracts are “time & material” contracts and I am constantly challenged to find areas of opportunity to contain/reduce cost and compress schedule where ever possible. We most recently compressed the schedule by roughly 8+ months from August 2013 to December 2012. This was at the customer’s request and the effort will be challenging. The vendor for which I was responsible for was the critical path for each of the each of the eight units being installed. I routinely managed and attended meetings with our customer, the China Nuclear Project.
