LOCATION • Warrens, Wis.

Robert Boesen, a Contracting Officer and leader in federal acquisitions is resolute in increasing his agency’s sustainable acquisitions. He aspires to increase procurement of environmentally preferable products and services that have a lower impact on human health and the environment than comparable products or services. He desires to educate his acquisition staff and stakeholders to embrace sustainable acquisitions as a transdisciplinary concept that identifies sustainable attributes and integrates sustainability requirements and objectives into the acquisition process. This will enable them to discover new sustainable products and services with the greatest environmental characteristics. To accomplish that objective, Robert has enrolled in the Educational Sustainability doctoral program at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. To start his career in federal acquisition, Robert had to leave his home state of Wisconsin to complete an internship in contracting for the United States Navy in Bremerton, Washington. While in Washington, Robert worked for several teams awarding environment, services, and construction contracts. After graduating from his internship, he was promoted and relocated to California. The opportunity to return home presented itself, and he returned to Wisconsin to work as a federal contract specialist in Milwaukee. While at home, Robert was promoted to Chief of the Contracting Office for his agency, currently leading a team of contracting professionals.
