JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast Commanding Officer Capt. Christopher Kiwus presented the Meritorious Service Medal (second award) to Cmdr. Miguel Dieguez, NAVFAC Southeast Assistant Regional Engineer, in a brief ceremony Oct. 21.

Dieguez was recognized for outstanding meritorious service while serving as Public Works Officer for NAVFAC Southeast at Public Works Department Naval Station (NS) Mayport from October 2011 through March 2013.

Dieguez displayed dynamic leadership, visionary innovation, and relentless commitment to excellence revitaled the Public Works Department and improved customer service, while enhancing the alignment and allocation of fiscal resources, according to the award citation.

"He expertly ensured the effective execution of $180 million while providing support for installation facilities management, recapitalization, base operating support, and environmental management," said Kiwus during the award presentation. "He superbly managed construction programs valued at more than $161 million that included work at NS Mayport, Marine Corps Blount Island Command, and the Navy Fuel Farm."

One inititive accomplished by Dieguez was a waterfront energy conservation program that resulted in a decrease of 12 percent in electricity consumption at NS Mayport, netting $3 million in savings and leading to the installation receiving the 2012 Secretary of the Navy Energy and Water Management Gold Level Achievement Award.

"The opportunity to support the Fleet, Warfighter, and their families at Naval Station Mayport made my tour as Mayport's Public Works Officer one of the most challenging and rewarding of my career," said Dieguez. "The successes and accomplishments highlighted by the award were a complete team effort."

"Much of the credit (for the award) belongs to the men and women of Naval Station Mayport's Public Works Department," continued Dieguez. "They are without a doubt the most talented and dedicated group of professionals I have had the pleasure of serving with."
