                         HON. CANDICE S. MILLER

                              of michigan

                    in the house of representatives

                       Thursday, December 5, 2013

  Mrs. MILLER of Michigan. Mr. Speaker, on the occasion of his 
retirement on October 31, 2013, we would like to thank Mr. Steve Kaeser 
for his over twenty-five years of distinguished service to the United 
States House of Representatives. Steve has served this great 
institution as a valued employee of House Information Resources (HIR), 
within the Office of the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO).
  Steve has held a multitude of senior engineering positions over the 
years and his technical expertise and skills have been invaluable to 
servicing customers in the House community as well as staff within 
Technology Support and Enterprise Operations. Before moving to 
Enterprise Operations, Steve served as an engineer on the Software 
Support Team, in the newly created Technology Call Center, and on the 
Escalations Team. Among his many accomplishments, Steve helped create 
and run the House's new anti-virus software program with the 
establishment of Trend. His other defining achievement was the 
establishment of an Apps-server, which created a central access point 
for the download of all supportable software.
  Moving forward, Steve has remained committed to supporting the ever-
changing technology environment. After a few years in Technology 
Support, Steve joined Enterprise Operations where he became involved in 
critical aspects of client server architecture. He played an integral 
role in Windows server delivery and support and he performed system 
builds, security analysis and troubleshooting. In addition to server 
support, on occasion, Steve would lend his ``radio'' voice to the 
Recording Studio as a narrator for House training or you might see him 
at a co-workers desk helping them solve a problem. Throughout his 
career, Steve has provided House customers with the world class service 
they expect from the CAO.
  On behalf of the entire House community, we extend congratulations to 
Steve for his years of dedication, outstanding contributions and 
service to the United States House of Representatives.
  We wish Steve much happiness in fulfilling his retirement dreams.
