Ms. Alvera Reichert
U.S. Department of International Development—(Other-Iraq Reconstruction)

Ms. Alvera Reichert distinguished herself in her performance and outstanding service as the Senior Contracting Officer at the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission to Iraq. In this role, Ms. Reichert transformed the mission’s contracting operations by building an acquisition and assistance (A&A) team from the ground up. Her actions served her nation and made history in two dynamic arenas: advancing U.S. national interests through the delivery of vitally needed development programs and representing the best of the American people through her personal and sustained commitment to improving the lives of the Iraqi people. For nearly two years, Ms. Reichert served as the senior contracting officer and director of A&A operations and established a fully functioning Office of Acquisition and Assistance (OAA) office in Baghdad while directly managing two construction contracts worth over $3 billion. The distinctive accomplishments of Ms. Reichert reflect great credit upon herself, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the acquisition workforce.

Additionally, the VAAA Intern School has received recognition from other agencies and industries as a “model of innovation.” Contracting offices within the agency have recognized the accelerated learning curve of the school’s interns during their job rotations.
