Jerry Massee, a member of the Los Alamos Field Office Cyber Security Team, recently earned recognition as New Mexico Federal Employee of the Year by the New Mexico Federal Executive Board.

Massee, a Santa Fe resident, provides oversight of the Information Technology (IT) and Records Management (IRM) programs at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). The two programs account for $250-$300 million of the lab’s $2.1 billion annual budget.
“Oversight of LANL’s technology and records systems is a huge responsibility that we take very seriously,” said Geoff Beausoleil, Acting Manager for the National Nuclear Security Administrations Los Alamos Field Office. “Jerry is a hard-working, dedicated and talented federal worker and we’re fortunate to have him on our team.”
As IT Specialist, Jerry oversaw setup of the lab’s IT Project Management Office. The IT office currently provides support for 33 lab-wide projects totaling over $50 million.
As the local interface with NNSA’s Headquarters IT office, Massee spearheaded discussions with the Department of Energy regarding the impact to LANL of changes in IT requirements.  The dialogue resulted in an alternative solution that saved the lab several million dollars and minimized adverse impacts to major software upgrades. The solution also led to significant savings for other contractors across the NNSA enterprise.
In the area of records management, the National Archives Records Administration highly rated the field office’s oversight of the LANL Records Program as well as the collaboration shared between organizations.
