10th Annual NAVSUP Academy Focuses on Transformation.
The annual three-day event historically affords NAVSUP civilian and military employees an opportunity to learn more about the NAVSUP "combat capability through logistics" mission and how it supports the Navy's global supply chain and the warfighter.
Started in 1995 and formerly known as the "NAVSUP Academy," the name was changed this year. "We wanted to preserve the spirit of the Academy and broaden the scope to address our current transformation initiatives," says Capt. Charles Lilli, USN, SC, NAVSUP's chief of staff.
Presentations were given by NAVSUP senior military and civilian leaders representing all of the enterprise's commands: Headquarters, the Fleet and Industrial Supply Centers, the Naval Inventory Control Point, the Navy Supply Information Systems Activity, the Navy Exchange Service Command, and the Naval Operational Logistics Support Center.
"The Transformation Academy provided a well-organized overall perspective of the NAVSUP enterprise," says participant Troy L. High, security director/chief of police for the Naval Support Activity.
At the end of the second day, an information exchange provided a forum for two-way communication on major change initiatives such as enterprise resource planning (ERP), the national security performance system, base realignment and closure, and lean six sigma. All members of the NAVSUP Civilian Board of Directors participated in this exchange.
"The Transformation Academy was extremely valuable, and the presentations were truly first rate," says Mary K. Graci, an information technology specialist with the Navy Supply Information Systems Activity, who paricipated. "The information exchange helped me to better understand my role in Navy ERP."
"The training I received at the Academy was the best government-provided training that I have received in my government career," says participant Pete DiRocco, supply systems analyst with the Naval Inventory Control Point.
