DON eGov Awards Fall 2004.

On Sept. 28, 2004, the Department of the Navy Chief Information Officer, Mr. David Wennergren, accompanied by the former DON Deputy CIO (Marine Corps), Brig. Gen. John Thomas and former DON Deputy CIO (Navy), Rear Adm. Robert Reilly, presented seven 2004 DON eGov Awards to Navy and Marine Corps program teams. The winning efforts are listed below:

Joint Task Force (JTF) 519 Operational and Training Web sites. Managed by U.S. Pacific Fleet and sponsored by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR), this effort provides the JTF with an unmatched ability to train, plan, develop and execute Joint warfighting missions.

Marine Corps Equipment Readiness Information Tool (MERIT). MERIT, developed by the Marine Corps Logistics Command and the Marine Corps Systems Command, drastically reduces the effort required to gather readiness information and provides the Marine Corps with a common operating picture of Marine Corps' Equipment Readiness.

The Marine Corps Network Operations and Security Command (MCNOSC) Forward Element deployed during Operation Iraqi Freedom. The MCNOSC Forward Element, through its theater level, enterprise IT management of the Marine Forces component to the U.S. Central Command, provided mission critical reach-back linkage to the Marine Corps Enterprise Network and significantly improved the combat mission effectiveness of Marine Forces in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

eTasker System. Developed by NAVSEA Program Executive Officer (PEO) Submarines, eTasker is a Web-based, action item tasking and tracking system. It has already replaced 27 legacy systems and is scheduled to replace 13 additional applications. In part, by adopting eTasker the USS Texas (SSN 775) will be the first submarine in history to be digitally-certified and paperless.

NAVFAC Applications Rationalization and Management. The Naval Facilities Engineering Command Team, through establishing standards and applying those standards in a rigorous decision process, reduced its portfolio of applications from over 33,000 to 796 to greatly ease NMCI transition. To date, four other Echelon II commands have applied NAVFAC's methodology for their rationalization and portfolio efforts.

Joint Expeditionary Warfare Logistics System (JEWLS). JEWLS, developed in partnership among the Naval Facilities Expeditionary Logistics Center, the Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center and the DON eBusiness Operations Office, integrates Navy legacy logistics systems with the Marine Corps' Common Logistics Command & Control System in support of the Naval Construction Forces. The end result is improved visibility of personnel, supplies, equipment inventory information and equipment readiness status across the battlespace.

Speed to Capability Approval, Management and Planning Process (SCAMP). The SCAMP Team, composed of representatives from PEO C4I and Space, SPAWAR and the DON eBusiness Operations Office, re-engineered an overarching business process that includes standards, guidance and a Web-based supporting toolset. The first set of projects to use the SCAMP process were approved, on average, 41.5 percent more quickly than the existing norm, very close to its goal of reducing the time to field information system upgrades and implementations by 50 percent.
