Interim Director for Division of Facilities Construction and Management

SALT LAKE CITY – The Department of Administrative Services (DAS) has named Bruce Whittington as the interim director of the Division of Facilities Construction and Management (DFCM). Whittington will step into the position November 1, 2014. A nationwide search will be conducted to find a replacement for Joshua Haines who recently accepted a position in the private sector.

“It is with bittersweet feelings that I have accepted Josh’s resignation,” said DAS Executive Director Kimberly Hood. He has been such a tremendous asset to the DFCM. His ability to forge relationships among stakeholders and to develop and mature internal teams has led the division to dramatic improvements in project management processes. We appreciate his great work and wish him the very best in his future endeavors.”

Utah National Guard embraces solar power

DRAPER, Utah – The Utah National Guard is going green when it comes to energy production, and officials flipped the switch Wednesday on more than 1,400 solar panels at the guard’s headquarters.

The effort is one of 10 similar projects of this nature scheduled to be completed this year by the state, and all told the projects will save an estimated $10 million over the next 20 years.

Gov. Gary Herbert was among those present as the system was activated, and he said the effort is an example of the ways the state can use more solar power energy production.

See the full article and a video of FOX 13 News’ Dave Nemeth taking a look at the project here.
