CHIPS celebrates 25 years in publication in 2007 as the Department of the Navy Information Technology Magazine.
Our founding motto — Dedicated to Sharing Information, Technology and Experience, aligns with our goal — to deliver knowledge superiority to the warfighter.
CHIPS is sponsored by the DON IT Umbrella Program of contracts and the Department of the Navy Chief Information Officer (DON CIO). Each issue contains a message from the DON CIO and articles highlighting the latest IT policies and initiatives in the DON and Department of Defense.
The Umbrella Program team assembles the latest information regarding the Umbrella Program contracts and Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs). Each issue contains an easy to use shopping guide — Under the Contract — spotlighting better than GSA pricing for all your technology needs.
Every issue is packed with cutting-edge technology topics, such as FORCEnet; knowledge dominance; C4ISR and network-centric warfare programs; e-business; e-learning; professional development — and interviews with top leadership from the DON and DoD.
We welcome articles from our readers! Please help us celebrate by submitting your articles and ideas to the CHIPS editors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CHIPS is published quarterly. Articles must be approved by your public affairs office and your chain of command prior to submitting your article to CHIPS.
