Defense Security Cooperation Agency Director Vice Adm. Joseph Rixey has said the agency is focusing on efficiency, effectivity and alignment of activities in U.S. weapons sales, Defense News reported Wednesday.

Rixey said in an interview with Vago Muradian that the launch of the Vision 2020 strategic plan is part of efforts to streamline the process of responses to requests of U.S. allies.

“I have to have very senior executives in my organizations that are going to be focused in on process improvement, making the process better, so that we can tie into all of the strategic objectives that DoD is going for, export-control reform,” Rixey said.

He noted that DSCA is working with Congress and other security cooperation stakeholders to discuss possible reforms such as policy and legislative changes to implement practices such as resource pooling.

DSCA is coordinating with industry teams on program requirements including technology security and transfer and other anticipated requests as well as focusing on training personnel, he added.

Rixey told Muradian that DSCA has facilitated foreign military sales at an average of $39 billion annually over the past five years.
