Corps of Engineers recognizes Robbinsdale, Minnesota, resident

Published April 10, 2017

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, selected Robbinsdale, Minnesota, resident Susan Robinson as one of its four Civil Servants of the Year for 2016.

The St. Paul District presents this award annually to the top three or four employees of its nearly 650-person staff. Robinson, who's worked for the Corps of Engineers for 26 years, is a
budget and management officer at the district’s headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Robinson received her award in recognition of her outstanding leadership abilities, technical competence and professional commitment. She will receive her award at the 39th Annual Minnesota Federal Civil Servant of the Year Awards in Bloomington, Minnesota, at the Double Tree Hotel May 4.

“Sue’s customer service to District Employees is second to none.” Said Peter C. Lillie Jr., Robinson’s supervisor. “The answer I hear to numerous questions is ‘I don’t know, ask Sue.’ Sue handles all inquiries with true professionalism and always finds the answer, even in the rare case she doesn’t know it.”

Robinson works in resource management where she manages the district operating budget, estimating costs, and determines affordability and impacts on both a district and regional level. She also facilitates the receipt of Corps funds from Congress and tracks the use of those funds.

The nearly 650 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, employees working at more than 40 sites in five upper-Midwest states serve the American public in the areas of environmental enhancement, navigation, flood damage reduction, water and wetlands regulation, recreation sites and disaster response. Through the St. Paul District Fiscal Year 2016 $78 million budget, nearly 1,250 non-Corps jobs were added to the regional economy as well as $120 million to the national economy.
