Defense Secretary Asks DoD to Seek Organizational Efficiencies
WASHINGTON, Feb. 21, 2017 — Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has distributed guidance to the Defense Department today concerning organizational and structural reforms and establishing cross-functional teams to address mission effectiveness and efficiencies, Pentagon spokesman Navy Capt. Jeff Davis said.
“The secretary has directed the department to address several things,” he said, “[such as] the disestablishment of the office of the undersecretary of defense for acquisitions, technology and logistics, to reform the functions of the chief management officer, and to optimize information management and cyber operations.”
Additionally, DoD will review its core business functions to make those operations more efficient, Davis said.
