Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work will retain his current role after President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration to work with defense secretary nominee James Mattis on management issues in the military,  DoD Buzz reported Monday.

Ricard Sisk writes Work said at a farewell ceremony in the Pentagon that he will stay at the Defense Department until his successor as the military’s second-highest civilian leader is confirmed.

Work received DoD’s highest civilian honor called the Distinguished Public Service Award at the ceremony, DoD News reported Friday.

Cheryl Pellerin writes Work received the award for efforts to lead the third offset strategy’s development and the maintenance of conventional deterrence.

The award citation stated that Work guided DoD through three planning, programming, budgeting and execution cycles, Pellerin reported.

Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said Work served as the point man in DoD’s push for budget investments across the military services.
