FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 27, 2011) – The sign outside the United States Property and Fiscal Office for Kentucky reads “Total Quality Support.”  USPFO showed their quality support by recently receiving the Col. Wayne A. Pratt Distinguished State award nominated by the National Guard American Society of Military Comptrollers.

“We try our best to support our Soldiers and we figure out away to provide for them so that they can accomplish the mission,” said Lt. Col. Brian DeMers, USPFO Kentucky deputy.

The Col. Wayne A. Pratt Distinguished State award is in honor of the late Col. Pratt, Alabama USPFO, for his legacy of support, leadership and contributions to the Army National Guard and to the ASMC NG Chapter.

Along with the distinguished state award, USPFO for Kentucky also collected eight more ASMC awards within the last two years.  Among those awards was the Financial Manager of the Year given to Gail Peyton, USPFO financial manager.

“We encourage all of our comptrollers and USPFO staff to be certified as a defense financial manager,” said Peyton. “We are the leading state with 12 certified personal which helps us manage our dollars better.”

USPFO Kentucky made significant contributions to the improvement within the financial fields of comptrollership.  Their commitment and success has led them to teach classes for other state comptrollers.

“If Soldiers have an idea about accomplishing their mission and not sure how to do it, ask us. We are here to support them and steer them down the right path,” said DeMers.
