sectors of the federal government, including the Naval Facilities Engineering Command and the Department of Defense (DOD). As director of utilities and energy in the Office of the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Installations and Environment), he was responsible for DOD’s energy program, where he offered insight on such issues as the security of utility infrastructure, the role of distributed generation and renewable energy, energy and water-resource management, utility acquisition, and utilities privatization. As the director of installations requirements and management at DOD, he was responsible for the administration and direction of installations worldwide. Dr. Moy has managed complex programs for the federal government, including projects with stringent energy and environmental mandates. He was the recipient of the U.S. 2007 Presidential Rank Award for Meritorious Service. He received the National Institute of Building Sciences President’s Award, which is presented to persons who have substantially improved the building process through government service. He is a fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers, and a member of the United States Naval Institute, the Society of American Military Engineers, and the Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society. Dr. Moy is a graduate of the Naval War College. He received a BS in civil engineering from the Catholic University of America and a master’s degree and doctorate of science degree in engineering administration from the George Washington University.

BURCU AKINCI is a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. Her research is focused primarily on information technologies and the development of formalized model-based approaches for analysis of construction projects. Her work involves developing models to capture building-related data over time to support decision-making during construction planning and execution and facility management. She collects data by using emerging sensing and data-capture technologies. Dr. Akinci is a coauthor of numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals, including “Technological assessment and process implications of field data capture technologies for construction and facility/infrastructure management,” “Tracking components and maintenance history within a facility utilizing radio frequency identification technology,” and
