As DoD Enterprise Email (EE) migrations continue to move along successfully, I know there is a lot of interest in the EE report the Secretary of the Army provided to Congress in February. I've linked the document. It is a pretty quick read and you will see why senior Army leaders are convinced the DISA-provided Enterprise Email solution is the best for choice for the Army.

I’m pleased to announce that on Monday the Army resumed migrations to the DoD Enterprise Email (EE) managed service. Recall that on Dec. 31, 2011, the Army suspended migrations to address requirements from Congress in the FY12 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

The Army EE report was delivered to Congress on Feb. 16, 2012. The Secretary of the Army certified that the Army's acquisition approach is in the best technical and financial interests of the Army, and provides for the maximum amount of competition possible. The Army’s acquisition of DoD EE services is now a formal acquisition program. For those of you who follow acquisition policy, EE is a Services Category II acquisition, and not a system acquisition. PEO EIS assumed the program management role and assigned a new Program Director.

I want to provide a brief update on the Army's migration to DoD Enterprise Email. You may recall from my January 5th post that the FY12 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) required the Army to pause its migration to DoD Enterprise Email until several questions were answered by the Secretary of the Army.

On Tue, Feb. 14, the Secretary of the Army certified that the Army's acquisition approach is in the best technical and financial interests of the Army, and provides for the maximum amount of competition possible. The acquisition of DoD Enterprise Email services by the Army was designated a formal acquisition program on January 25, 2012.

On December 31, 2011 President Obama signed the FY 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). As you know, the law contains language that affects the Army’s migration to Enterprise Email. Here’s what we expect to happen over the next several months as a result.

The NDAA requires the Secretary of the Army to designate Enterprise Email a formal acquisition program with the Army Acquisition Executive as the milestone decision authority. In addition, the Secretary must submit a report to the congressional defense committees regarding program specifics, including requirements, an analysis of alternatives and expected costs and savings.

The Army may not expend any FY12 funds on migration to Enterprise Email until 30 days after the required report is delivered to Congress. However, the NDAA permits sustainment and maintenance of already migrated accounts and the day-to-day provisioning of new mailboxes/accounts in organizations that have completed migration.
