Brad Carson, formerly acting undersecretary for personnel and readiness at the Defense Department, has said his efforts to update the military personnel management processes and the “Force of the Future” initiative will prevail, Military Times reported Monday.
Andrew Tilghman writes Carson made the remarks at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington days after he stepped down from his position Friday.
Peter Levine, deputy chief management officer at DoD, was appointed to succeed Carson in the role.
Scott Maucione also reported for Federal News Radio that Carson spearheaded efforts to allow women to serve in military positions and extend maternity leave for servicewomen during his time at the Pentagon.
He told event attendees that there will be more changes to DoD’s personnel system in the next few weeks.
Carson noted that he expects Congress to approve the Force of the Future’s third tranche, which aims to introduce changes to the Pentagon’s “up or out” promotion system for military officers under the Defense Officer Personnel Management Act, Maucione reports.
