Spotlight on...Roderick Redman
April 4, 2012
A contract cost/price analyst with the Army Contracting Command-Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., Roderick W. Redman ensures that the Army acquires goods and services at a fair and reasonable price.
"It's a great honor to procure items for our Soldiers that give them the tools they need to accomplish the mission and come home safely to their families," he said.
Realizing that Soldiers are frequently deployed and often endure prolonged separation from family and friends, Redman adds that it's all he can do to serve.
"There is no greater civilian service to our men and women in uniform," he said.
After a day's work, there is nothing he enjoys more than taking Tess, his 9-yearold daughter, out to visit the country's natural wonders or spend time reading books and playing games with her.
The Clarksville, Md., resident brings to the ACC-APG workforce a license to practice civil litigation and contract law and has undergraduate experience in aerospace engineering and business management. Prior to joining the ACC workforce, Redman worked in satellite communications, cellular networks and telecommunications infrastructure. The last few years he served with a network consulting company.
It's a background he uses to his advantage when he evaluates contract proposals.
"I work proactively to be a strategic business advisor," he said. "I want to ensure and maintain the fairness and integrity of the acquisition process and uphold the standards of the contracting professional."
