Once the organizations implemented the recommendations and the DCMO
confirms it, the Agency would then perform follow-on audits to determine whether or not the newly implemented corrective actions produced the estimated benefits or costs in the previous audits.
Third, as the DCMO organization becomes the focal point for DOD-wide management, administration, business oversight, it's my intent to transfer specific responsibility for business IT systems from the DCMO to DOD's chief information officer.
Fourth, in order to consolidate intelligence oversight and privacy compliance functions, I am directing that the Office of the Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Intelligence Oversight and the Defense Privacy and Civil Liberties Offices be combined into a single office that will be aligned under the new DCMO organization.
As part of this contract, TechTeam will support the operation of an enterprise information exchange for the Office of the Secretary of Defense and support the DCMO in its performance improvement and metrics effort.
Using TechTeam's leading edge enterprise architecture capabilities and innovative practices, as well as our world-class program management and consulting skills, we look forward to helping DCMO meet its mission: to support the warfighter and manage the enterprise architecture sources of the future Department of Defense.
McCord: Our organization has been around in something like its current form since the Department was created right after WWII, but the DCMO is still I think a bit of a work in progress.
Runnels: Lastly, related to DCMO, have you seen any movement toward or been involved in any discussion about the application of "enterprise risk management" within the Department?
Wennergren: One of the big priorities for the DCMO
team is optimizing the endto-end business processes of the Department of Defense.
The Defense Logistics Agency created the DCMO
in November 1998 to enhance the accuracy of DEMIL codes.
