Defense Department acquisition chief Frank Kendall has outlined the continued work of the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization to support soldiers as JIEDDO transitions to the Pentagon’s office of acquisition, technology and logistics, DoD News reported Wednesday.

Karen Parrish writes that the new Defense Department agency’s move to the AT&L organization works to support its rapid acquisition efforts for technologies that counter improvised explosive devices.

“JIEDDO’s close engagement with its operational force customers and with the intelligence community makes it a model for innovation and agility in defense acquisition,” Kendall told the organization’s workforce during a visit to its headquarters.

He noted that JIEDDO will continue its work with Iraq and Afghanistan toward the suppression of the Islamic State group and other adversaries that use IEDs, the report said.
