Michael Basla: Air Force Mulls CIO, ISR Office Reorganization

F35U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. Michael Basla said Tuesday the branch’s top leaders are considering whether to integrate the functions of the chief information officer’s ISR offices, FCW reported Tuesday.

Amber Corrin writes the move is one of several reorganizations being discussed as the military works to implement guidance outlined in the Defense Department‘s Strategic Choices and Management Review.

Basla, the Air Force’s CIO and chief of information dominance, made the remarks during an air and space conference held Tuesday at National Harbor, Md.

“Based on the SCMR that the defense secretary kicked off some time ago, the Air Force chief of staff has directed a look at our headquarters, as well as the major commands,” Basla said, according to FCW.

“The chief and the secretary have said nothing is off the table,” he added.
