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.

As scheduled, the Army-DISA EE Service Level Agreement was reviewed during this 2nd Quarter FY12, and is being updated. The teams are discussing several revisions based on lessons-learned from the past 12 months of operational experience. Concurrently, the Army is updating the concept-of-operations document, making drastic improvements to change IT management processes for existing and emerging EE-related tactics, techniques and procedures. These improvements will help with the success of enterprise services beyond email as well.

During the pause, EE clean-up operations were completed in CONUS, the Pacific and Italy, and operational test migrations were conducted in Southwest Asia.

To date there are approximately 310K joint and Army DoD EE users. We plan to begin SIPRNet migrations in 3QFY12. As a result of this recent pause, we expect to complete Army NIPRNET and SIPRNET migrations in 2QFY13. Go to the NETCOM EE website (CAC required) to view the migration schedule.

Once again, I'd like to express my gratitude to the entire team of Army, DISA, Defense Manpower Data Center, Soldiers, civilians, contractors and mission partners who are working to make this critical capability a reality.

Re: Army Resumes Email Migrations

One thing I learned in life is to love what makes you happy and to cherish every moment you spend with your family, friends or love ones because everything that we have now on earth is temporary. Well, thank you for inspiring us with your great art work.
