The Defense Information Systems Agency believes it can save the military services big bucks on data storage, processing and communications by becoming a one-stop-shop for IT in the continental U.S. Under a new Pentagon plan, it's the military's only provider for large data centers.
The Army says it has more next-generation network capacity than it needs, and the Air Force has the opposite problem. A new agreement to share infrastructure will save the Air Force more than $1 billion.
Full-time counselors hired by the Department of Veterans Affairs will have offices on 94 college campuses by 2014. The on-site counselors help student veterans with everything from GI Bill problems to transitioning from military to civilian life.
The Army Reserve has kicked off a program where it will partner with the private sector to help fund its large-scale training exercises. Lt. Gen. Jeff Talley, the chief of the Army Reserve, said the initiative capitalizes on what he sees as one of the Reserve's strengths: its members' connection to private employers.
Signing up new recruits is not a problem for the Army Reserve. Getting them to stay long enough to fill slots for midgrade and senior enlisted positions is another matter.
Out of 300 employers to be recognized for creating flexible workplaces this year, the William Perry Center for Hemispheric Defense Studies is the only federal entity that made the cut.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel orders seven reforms based on existing "best practices" inside and outside of DoD. Critics call the announcement a missed opportunity for more sweeping changes in the fight against military sexual assault.
The director of the Defense Information Systems Agency says the agency will spend the next year focusing on a faster, more agile acquisition process to accelerate the way it delivers technology, rather than letting procurements drag on for years.
The Army Corps of Engineering is already having difficulty recruiting candidates for certain fields, and is convinced the problem will worsen unless STEM graduation rates increase.
The Defense Information Systems Agency will issue several contracts under a unified capabilities initiative to move virtually all of DoD's communications onto Internet Protocol-based networks, and to better integrate voice, video and data services.
Defense Department's decision to centralize management of mobile technology is borne out of painful lessons from regular old wired IT networks. Budget pressure, officials say, makes it easier to sell the concept of doing things once and sharing the results.
Building off a project to assess the nation's overall cyber capabilities, the Department of Homeland Security has begun drawing up plans for how it would respond in the event of a range of cyber emergencies affecting critical infrastructure.
The Navy entered 2010 with what officials say was a fleet that was well below acceptable standards for material readiness. It's made gains in its maintenance procedures since then, which the service says sequestration will quickly undo.
The Pentagon says no decisions have been made, but eliminating 2013 furloughs is at the top of the funding priority list if it can find any excess funds.
As the first elements of sequestration's impact on the Defense industrial base begin to take shape, observers inside and outside the Pentagon worry about small businesses.
Next fiscal year would lack the luxury of using prior-year unobligated funds to help fill the gap created by sequestration in 2013. The DoN also would still have more people on its payroll than it can afford to pay.
In responding to a list of wartime contracting changes Congress ordered last year, agencies cited many advances, but acknowledge challenges remain. Recent audits show major problems in how the Defense and State departments, and the U.S. Agency for International Development, continue to spend billions of dollars in Afghanistan.
Dan Doney, the new chief innovation officer at the Defense Intelligence Agency, talks about the agency's plan to change the way it interacts with industry and brings innovation to government.
Dr. Jonathan Woodson, the assistant secretary of defense for health affairs, says the Iraq and Afghanistan wars are still teaching lessons to the civilian health-care community. Woodson joins Jared Serbu for the full hour on this week's edition of On DoD to discuss the evolution of military medicine.
Without commenting on the reasons behind the protest, a team led by Computer Sciences Corporation challenged the Navy's decision to award a multibillion dollar contract to operate IT networks to a competing team headed up by HP.
