Through innovative use of IM/IT, the team met Navy requirements without duplicating existing programming and financial management controls at FCC headquarters and globally dispersed subordinate commands. The team’s forceful advocacy increased user capability, reduced decision cycle timelines Navy-wide and improved FCC mission effectiveness. In just 10 months, the team created processes from scratch and conducted intensive analysis directly affecting the approval of over 800 IT investment requirements for Navy funded, NMCI/CoSC and nationally funded IT procurement requests. The value of these investments exceeded $100M and encompassed telecommunication services, Programs of Record support, contract support services, software and hardware. The team’s diligence and innovation resulted in significant achievements in advancing the DON, OPNAV, and FCC vision for managing this knowledge and information, thus enabling effectiveness at the Echelon II and Echelon I levels. Collaboration, communication, and execution of IT expenditures throughout the FCC HQ and domain now follow documented, repeatable processes that have resulted in better decision-making and increased mission effectiveness, visibility, and oversight for all FCC IT Investments across all classification enclaves. “We’re proud of the team’s hard work that has enabled FCC leadership to make decisions during the past year to avoid duplicate projects, ensure consistency throughout the domain, and identify new avenues to pursue IT efficiencies,” said team leader and member Neal Miller, FCC Deputy Chief Information Officer for Mission Assurance.Importantly, these efficiencies aid FCC in fulfilling its goal of providing Navy and Joint commanders with an operational advantage by assuring access to cyberspace and confident command and control, preventing strategic surprise in cyberspace, and delivering decisive cyber effects.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, February 4, 2013; Image: US Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today US Fleet Cyber Command Wins Excellence Award for IT Accomplishments US Fleet Cyber Command Wins Excellence Award for IT Accomplishments View post tag: Accomplishments View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Excellence View post tag: Command View post tag: Navycenter_img View post tag: Cyber View post tag: US View post tag: award View post tag: wins Training & Education Share this article View post tag: fleet View post tag: Navallast_img
