Frye Hall of Excellence Award. The award, presented to Mr. Jackson during a virtual ceremony, acknowledges outstanding individuals who have made a sustainable impact to the acquisition workforce.

Mr. Jackson's efforts have strengthened the VA acquisition workforce while promoting professionalism through recruiting, workforce development, and talent management.

He has consistently applied sound judgment to countless critical situations and has always produced exceptional outcome despite limited and sometimes even scarce resources.

Through his principled servant leadership, Mr. Jackson has supported an increasingly professional and diverse acquisition workforce that has made substantial improvement in the efficiency and productivity of VA acquisition programs.

The award was established in honor of Mr. Jan R. Frye, who served as Executive Director of the Office of Acquisition and Logistics (OAL) from 2005 - 2018. He established the award-winning VA Acquisition Academy (VAAA) and the Warriors to Workforce Internship Program to ensure the development of the acquisition workforce.
