Navy Establishes Council to Oversee Readiness Reform Efforts Following DDG-62 Collision

The U.S. Navy has assembled a council tasked to oversee the implementation of reform efforts stemming from recommendations under submitted reports on past collision incidents.

Navy Undersecretary Thomas Modly and Adm. William Moran, vice chief of naval operations, serve as co-chairs to the Readiness Reform and Oversight Council that was found Jan. 30, the Navy said Friday.

The council’s founding charter states the task to “provide continuity to see reforms and recommendations through to effective completion, and thereby guard against similar future trends and challenges that adversely impact the Department of the Navy’s Readiness.”

Reports such as the Strategic Readiness Review and Comprehensive Review of Surface Force Incidents will be used as basis for the reform efforts that the council will supervise.

The Comprehensive Review of Surface Force Incidents consists of insights deducting the causes that led to ship collisions such as the one between USS Fitzgerald and Motor Vessel ACX Crystali.
