During her more than 35 year Army career, MG N. Lee S. Price has inspired people to innovate, form highperforming teams and produce unrivaled results.

As the Army’s first female Program Executive Officer (PEO), MG Price guides the PEO Command, Control and Communications-Tactical (C3T) workforce of more than 1,800 personnel who execute an annual budget of $4 billion. The dedicated PEO C3T team works by the Warfighter’s side in training and theater locations throughout the world. They acquire, sustain and support the networked mission command solutions that bring technological dominance to present and future Warfighters. Within one year of MG Price’s tenure, which began in November 2009, PEO C3T was awarded the David Packard award, the Department of Defense acquisition community’s highest award. In November 2011, the U.S. Senate confirmed her nomination to the rank of Major General. She was officially promoted in March 2012.

In 2004, MG Price received the Army Acquisition Excellence Project Manager (PM) of the Year Award as PM Defense Communications and Army Transmission Systems (DCATS). As PM DCATS, she managed programs valued at more than $2 billion. One was a $300 million project to build a commercial
communications network in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait. With this came the fielding of the first Very Small

Aperture Satellite Terminals to combat service support troops and an effort that more than quadrupled deliveries of Land Mobile Radio systems to numerous Department of Defense forces and government agencies. During her subsequent three-year tenure as the Deputy Acquisition Executive for the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), MG Price was responsible for providing more than $3 billion per year of specialized equipment for service-wide National and Theater Special Operators. The USSOCOM acquisitions focused on delivering mission-critical products such as body armor, aircraft, sensors, radios, watercraft and ammunition within six months from validation to delivery. MG Price’s more than 25 years of acquisition experience includes a wide range of other assignments such as product manager, Theater Automated Command and Control Information Management System in Seoul, Korea from 1998-2000. Up against the Y2K deadline, her team flawlessly replaced the Y2K non compliant

Command and Control System in South Korea. Its replacement is used by all U.S. forces, as well as the Republic of Korea’s Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. MG Price began her military career in 1975 as a private first class in the Alabama National Guard. After being commissioned through Officer Candidate School, she was transferred to the Signal Corps. She entered active duty in October 1981. MG Price has a Bachelor of Science degree and two master’s degrees.

Her awards include the Defense Superior Service Medal, the Legion of Merit (two awards), the Bronze Star, the Defense Meritorious Service Medal (two awards), the Meritorious Service Medal (five awards), the Joint Meritorious Unit Award, the Iraq Campaign Medal, the Korean Defense Service Medal, the Army Staff Badge and the Combat Action Badge. In 2009, MG Price was inducted into the Alabama Business and Professional Women’s Foundation Academy of Honor.
