He was the lead for the Stryker program’s transition from a CLS contract to a PBL contract as the program went from an interim system to an enduring weapon system. He led efforts to write the scope of work for both contracts while forming relationships to ensure program success. The Stryker program is now the largest PBL in the Army by scope and dollar value, and it has won the system level DoD PBL award the last 2 years (2021 & 2022). In 2023, Mr Tarasenko took on additional roles to support other TACOM performance based contract such as the M777 Towed Howitzer and the Abrams TIGER engine.
