Lt. Gen. Ronnie Hawkins Jr., director of the Defense Information Systems Agency, has said that DISA’s reorganization plans aim to build its agility, adaptability, speed to market and engagement with the entire Defense Department.

DoD News reported Tuesday that Hawkins told a Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association panel discussion Monday that DISA continues to work toward becoming the primary source of information technology services within DoD.

“We believe we’ve got to be agile in how it is we move about and employ our information technology for the future for the Department of Defense,” he said.

He also highlighted the agency’s efforts to build up its cyber, cloud, collaboration and command and control services for DoD.

According to Hawkins, the reorganization also includes a realignment with DoD’s Better Buying Power program and placement of DISA’s contracting unit under the DISA component acquisition executive.

“[By] the end of this calendar year, we should be solidly ensconced into this reorganization such that we are working at cyber speed for where we want to go,” he said.
