In the wake of the shooting in which 12 civilian and contract employees were gunned down at the Washington Navy Yard Monday, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has ordered a review of security procedures at all Defense Department bases worldwide.
In an effort to reduce costs, officials at the Navy put in place a system for granting contractors access to installations that ended up allowing as many as 52 convicted felons access to bases, according to a Defense Department inspector general report released Tuesday. The IG found the system, called Rapidgate, failed to comply with federal standards and that background checks were conducted using only publicly accessible databases. The security of Navy installations was thrown into the spotlight Monday after 34-year-old contractor Aaron Alexis entered the Washington Navy Yard Monday morning where he shot and killed 12 people.
A profile is emerging of Aaron Alexis, the man identified as the lone gunman in the mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., that left 13 people dead Monday, including the shooter himself. Alexis was a former Navy reservist, a Defense Department contractor, a convert to Buddhism and a student of aeronautics. But he also had flashes of temper that led to run-ins with police in Fort Worth, Texas, and Seattle.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation said that 34-year-old Aaron Alexis used a valid pass to enter the Navy Yard premises Monday. Alexis worked for The Experts, a subcontractor on an HP Enterprise Services contract to refresh equipment used on the Navy Marine Corps Intranet network. He was able to obtain a valid pass to the Navy Yard through his work as a contractor.
Thirteen people are dead and more are injured after a shooting at the Washington Navy Yard Monday morning. The shooter, who was killed during the incident, has been identified as Aaron Alexis of Texas.

Explosion in boathouse during maintenance at US Navy base in NJ injures 8, 1 seriously
The most recent commander of U.S. submarines in Asia and the Middle East took command on Wednesday of the entire Pacific Fleet submarine force.
The council is restructuring to match the Obama administration's technology priorities for innovation, governance and cybersecurity. It will now operate with three main committees instead of five.
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 Department of the Navy will begin to virtualize its services and hopes to achieve total server virtualization by 2017, in an effort to cut costs. The service has been active in cutting IT costs in the wake of Defense budget cuts.
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.
This week on "Off the Shelf," Elliott Branch, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Acquisition and Procurement discusses the Navy's procurement strategies.

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.
Hewlett Packard, the same vendor which has owned and operated the Navy Department's networks for more than a decade will continue a similar role under a new multibillion dollar contract. But the Navy and Marine Corps will take ownership of their IT infrastructure and reserve the right to recompete any or all of it at a future date.
