Dawson & Associates is honored to welcome John Moore, former head of contracting at the Army Corps of Engineers Savannah District for 18 years, to our firm.

During his 30 years with the Corps of Engineers, John oversaw and managed contracts for some of the Corps’ largest military construction missions. As Chief of Contracting at the Corps’ Savannah District from 1996 to 2014, John oversaw and managed contracts worth more than $2 billion annually in 2008 & 2009 and $1+ billion in 2010 and 2011.

This represented the largest military construction operation in USACE history.

During John’s service, the Army consistently rated Savannah as one of its lead Districts in executing the Army’s Military Construction (MILCON) mission. The Savannah District was also one of the Corps’ first military districts to venture into two-phase design-build contracts, both stand alone and as part of large Multiple Award Contracts.

Prior to Savannah, John was Chief of Contracting for the Corps of Engineers, Japan District, overseeing approximately $1 billion in operations and maintenance contracts for U.S. military services.

During his time with the Corps, John received both the Secretary of the Army Team Award for Excellence in Construction Contracting and the Bronze Order of the de Fleury Medal.

A graduate of the University of Oregon, he has an MBA from the University of Dallas and an MA from the University of Hawaii.
