Five Year DND Employee, Lisa Berlinguette  Receives Commandant’s Commendation

Lisa Berlinguette is a five year DND employee who has worked at the Royal Military College of Canada, College Information Services (CIS) since April 2009. Prior to her employment at RMCC, she worked at the CFB Kingston Base Hospital for three years.

Lisa was recently recognized for her outstanding work with a Commandant’s Commendation in front of a capacity crowd at the Field House during the military training weekend parade.

The Administration Officer for CIS hails from Ottawa and moved to Kingston around 18 years ago.

She is a vibrant young lady who obviously enjoys her work. “I very much enjoy my position here at CIS, as well as working at RMC in general.”

We asked her about her future plan.

“Future plans include (part-time) post-secondary studies at RMC – I will be starting my Certificate Program – Business Management with Applications to Defence in the summer semester this year, and eventually would like to work that into a BA.”

The citation reads:

Faced with the colossal task of organizing, monitoring and executing the expenditure of large amounts of year end funds, on top of her normal duties, she demonstrated unwavering dedication to the task, working many evenings and weekends to ensure all necessary timelines were met. Requiring very close liaison with Comptroller staff, constant engagement with Supply, and the motivating of managers to complete required paperwork, she impressed all with her unwavering professionalism, attention to detail and extreme devotion to duty. The result of her steadfast dedication, leadership and guidance has resulted in the acquisition of critical IT equipment, software and supplies which will greatly improve services to the College.

Confrontée à la tâche colossale d’organiser, de surveiller et d’effectuer la dépense de montants élevés de fonds de fin d’exercice en plus d’accomplir son travail normal, Mme Lisa Berlinguette a fait preuve d’un dévouement inlassable travaillant pendant de nombreuses soirées et fins de semaine afin de veiller au respect de tous les délais. Cette tâche a exigé qu’elle soit en communication étroite avec le personnel du Bureau du contrôleur et en rapports constants avec le personnel d’approvisionnement, et qu’elle motive les gestionnaires à remplir les documents nécessaires. Tous ont été impressionnés par son professionnalisme sans faille, sa grande minutie et son admirable dévouement. Grâce à ses conseils, à son leadership et à son dévouement indéfectible, on a pu acquérir de l’équipement, des logiciels et des fournitures informatiques essentiels qui permettront d’améliorer considérablement les services fournis au Collège
