Robert "Skip Vaughn

Robert “Skip” Vaughn joined NIST in November 2016 as the Chief Facilities Management Officer and the Director of the Office of Facilities and Property Management. In these roles, Skip provides advice to the NIST Director and senior NIST leadership on matters affecting the operation and administration of the NIST sites in Gaithersburg, Maryland, and Boulder, Colorado. Skip’s history with sustainable engineering/construction stretches more than two decades, from being part of the first Super ESPC (Energy Savings Performance Contract) program development team with the U.S. Coast Guard in the 1990s, to leading the team that earned the first LEED Platinum rated federal building project in the Washington, D.C., area in the early 2000s.
