This memo addresses information technology/cyberspace efficiency initiatives and realignment in the Department of the Navy. It underscores the challenge by the Secretary of Defense to think about the DON's approach to IT initiatives and to centralize and consolidate efforts where it makes sense. This memo directs the DON Chief Information Officer to take the lead for the Department for this endeavor, noting that it is a team effort and no one organization can do it alone.

It also designates the DON CIO as the DON's IT/Cyberspace Efficiency Lead. It directs him to partner with several Secretariat level offices, the Chief of Naval Operations and Commandant of the Marine Corps to ensure the Department's IM, IT/cyberspace and Information Resource Management (IRM) goals are clearly articulated and met. The memo directs these offices to review their current processes and procedures to ensure their organizations are aware and actively included in all IM, IT/cyberspace and IRM activities. Additionally, to ensure a common, enterprise approach to IM, IT/cyberspace and IRM activities, the memo tasks the DON CIO to provide updates to the memos of August 2005 and November 2006 designating the DON Deputy Chief Information Officers.
