Greg Garcia: Pentagon CIO, DCMO to Offer Transitional Oversight of Joint IT Services Program

digital governmentGreg Garcia, executive director of the U.S. Army Information Technology Agency, has said the Defense Department chief information officer and deputy chief management officer will oversee the proposed Joint Information Technology Service Provider-Pentagon program until JITSPP reaches full operating capability.

JITSPP was proposed after Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work signed a memo in May to form a single service provider in an effort to consolidate Pentagon’s IT services, Garcia wrote in an ITA release published June 15.

Garcia said ITA and the Enterprise Information Technology Service Division will comprise the JITSPP program and that the DoD CIO and DCMO will turn over the program’s management to the Defense Information Systems Agency once FOC is achieved by October 2016.

The Pentagon plans to release a list of performance standards and shared IT services by the end of June and expects to reach initial operating capability for JITSPP by July, he added.
