Vice President of Contracts and Subcontracts, ManTech
JoAnne Dukeshire joined ManTech in the fall of 2021 and has collaborated with leadership, as well as contracts and subcontracts teams, to emphasize and strengthen the crucial role of contracts and subcontracts professionals in achieving program success companywide.
Bonnie Cook, ManTech executive vice president and chief performance officer, said Dukeshire has built an “industry-recognized career as an expert in program acquisition, contract negotiation, competitive proposal development and business strategy across defense, intelligence and federal civilian agencies.”
“Her approach to building the ManTech Contracts and Subcontracts team to be trusted partners to our customers and business teams has advanced ManTech’s focus on the mission and our customers’ success,” Cook added.
Dukeshire’s organization is dedicated to leveraging contracting management systems and tools to streamline workflows. They are looking into tech solutions to better track and predict contract performance, including spotting trends, opportunities and risk solutions. Dukeshire thinks these actions will boost collaboration and benefit the business.
“The federal contracts/subcontracts profession has changed over the course of my career to be less transaction-focused and more business development, customer and partner-relationship focused,” she said. “It is especially rewarding to work for a company like ManTech that values effective contract management, especially the critical role our contracts/subcontracts workforce plays in strengthening the open lines of communication with our government customers.”
