On June 14th the Army celebrates its 237th birthday, marking the day in June 1775 when the Continental Congress approved a unified force to battle for freedom from the British crown. Once independence was won, the Founding Fathers vigorously debated the future of the Army. Should the new country have a standing army controlled by and responsible only to the central government?

After 10 years of sustained conflict, the Army is broadening LandWarNet modernization to include the network enterprise infrastructure on Posts, Camps and Stations. The Army’s top three challenges are improving Cybersecurity and Network Operations (NetOps), meeting operational needs in a dynamic threat environment, and becoming more efficient in a fiscally constrained environment.

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.
