Navy CIO Terry Halvorsen Aiming to Cut IT Spending 25%

Terry Halvorsen, U.S. Navy CIO

Navy Chief Information Officer Terry Halvorsen recently issued a simplified business-case analysis template, Federal News Radio reports.

The Navy’s simplified approach is part of a department-wide initiative which aims to trim 25 percent from information technology spending within five years.

The template was created to streamline communication between the IT industry and Navy personnel and facilitate austerity programs, according to Federal News Radio.

It uses a table designed to demonstrate savings from IT proposals in comparison to the standard expense of current procedures.

The new system also limits the requirement needed in the analytical section and removed comparison of alternatives, Federal News Radio reports.

In February Halvorsen also issued a memorandum requiring all cybersecurity workers to follow a new certification process which is expected to be added to the standard military training.
