DISA Begins Transition to DoDNET IT Services Hub

The Defense Information Systems Agency is working on migrating its information technology services to the consolidated Department of Defense Network aimed at providing a hub for tech support across defense agencies, FCW reported Monday.

The migration comes as part of the  Fourth Estate Network Optimization program, which seeks to transition the first five defense agencies to DoDNET and Defense Enclave Services by the end of fiscal 2021.

Col. Chris Autrey, military deputy for desktop services at DISA, said at an industry event hosted by the agency that it is in the process of selecting sources for the migration effort. 

"By bringing the agency into a pre-competed set of equipment that's approved, meets all the cybersecurity requirements, we have a known good baseline to work with and if you're buying off that list we know we can support it,” he noted.
