The Virginia Association of Counties (VACo) announced the 30 recipients of the 2021 Achievement Awards, which recognize excellence in local government programs. VACo received 102 submissions. Prince William County had two winning submissions by the Finance Department Procurement Services Division and the Planning Office. Winning entries focused on addressing issues of inclusion, belonging, and reconciliation that challenges counties today.

The Prince William County Procurement Services Division received an award for its Workload Balance initiative. As the workloads increased and staff became overwhelmed, it became evident that a rebalance of workload for Procurement Officers was needed. To this end, the Assistant Director of Finance for Procurement Services, Adam Manne, and Erika Bukva, the Procurement Manager who oversees all non­capital procurements for the County, developed a method to measure current workload volume that incorporates both subjective/intangible factors and objective/measurable factors. The goal was to identify unbalanced workloads and opportunities for improved Procurement Officer alignment among County departments/agencies, to address the challenges felt by staff, and to provide excellent customer service.
