The Marine Corps has invested significantly in the MCEITS program, as well as the host facility, the Marine Corps IT Center in Kansas City.
This is the facility that hosts the MCEITS program of record, and we intend to maximize its potential by continuing to consolidate significant parts of the Marine Corps enterprise level IT capability under that roof, enabling a more responsive and efficient use of resources.
Q: Is MCEITS the way that the Marine Corps is going to tie into the JRSS, the Joint Regional Security Stacks?
Using an inclusion process and leveraging the capital planning and investment control (CPIC) process, the Marine Corps will develop relevant metrics and assess proposed services/applications for enterprise deployment onto MCEITS.
Q: Can you talk about the progress in establishing the MCEITS framework which hosts an application and data hosting environment with supporting communications, computing network information assurance, and enterprise services infrastructure?
Additional Marine Corps applications are scheduled to move onto the MCEITS environment during fiscal year (FY) 13.
In addition to that, whatever we do with MCEITS
