DON Information Technology Policy Guidance for Fiscal Year 2012
DON CIO Memo - Publish Date: 12/15/11
Since its inception, the focus of the Department of the Navy Information Technology Policy Guidance has been on enabling knowledge dominance by directing that our information management/information technology spending support the creation of a joint, net-centric naval networking environment. The net-centric vision remains a goal, but cutting the Department's IT spending is the priority for 2012. In the face of sharply reduced defense budgets, the Under Secretary has directed the DON to cut IT spending by 25 percent over the next five years. To that end, several new policies are in effect for Fiscal Year 2012. This memo provides details on those policies.
