DON Information Technology Expenditure Approval Authorities
DON CIO Memo - Publish Date: 07/19/11
This memo requests that the Navy and Marine Corps each designate an Information Technology Expenditure Approval Authority (ITEAA). The ITEAA will be responsible to ensure that all information technology projects undertaken by the Navy and Marine Corps are integral parts of rationalized service portfolios, aligned with DON IT goals and conform to the DON and Department of Defense enterprise architectures. No resource planning, programming or budgeting shall be done and no action shall be taken to acquire or procure any IT software, hardware, or service with a projected lifecycle cost or purchase price totaling $1 million or more unless the project has been approved by the respective service's ITEAA.
Service ITEAAs must be designated not later than Aug. 15, 2011. To maintain coordination and consistency of effort, the service ITEAA will consult with the DON CIO -- the DON's IT/Cyberspace Efficiency Lead.
