Navy Adm. Michael Rogers, director of the National Security Agency, has said NSA will launch a reorganization of its workforce in January following a 10-month evaluation of the agency’s structure, Government Executive reported Wednesday.
Charles Clark writes Rogers told his audience at an Intelligence and National Security Alliance event that the agency’s NSA21 reorganization program would focus on organizational structure, innovation and employee development.
Federal News Radio reported that Rogers expects the initiative to help improve collaboration within NSA as well as with industry in an effort to foster innovation.
“We have got to learn what it means to collaborate and partner internally every bit as much as we reach out to the outside world for a broader set of partners,” said Rogers, who also serves as commander of U.S. Cyber Command.
Rogers also noted that the reorganization will not result in the consolidation of functions between NSA and Cybercom, Scott Maucione writes.
The NSA chief discussed the reorganization during a Senate hearing in September.
