DON IT Conference, East Coast 2015

Jun 17-18, 2015

Baltimore Convention Center
Baltimore, Md

The Department of the Navy Information Technology Conference has been rescheduled for June 17-18, 2015, and will be held at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Md. No conference fee will be assessed, but registration is required. The DON IT Conference is typically held in fleet concentration areas on the West Coast and East Coast each year to minimize cross-country travel by participants. Additionally, conference sessions will be available via DCO.

UPDATE (6/15/15): The DON CIO Town Hall, scheduled to take place June 18, has been rescheduled to begin at 8:45 AM, and end at 10:00 AM. The DUSN (M) town hall has been cancelled and several other sessions on the same day have been slightly adjusted as a result. The updated schedule can be downloaded below.

The purpose of the DON IT conference is to:

  1. Explain the new and invigorated DUSN (M), DON/AA, and DON CIO organization and its business and IT transformation priorities.
  2. Share information that supports the SECNAV's vision laid out in the DON Transformation Plan to achieve business transformation priorities, leverage strategic opportunities, and implement DON institutional reform initiatives by changing the culture, increasing the use of data-driven decision-making, and effective governance.
Senior speakers primarily from the DUSN M/DON CIO, Navy and Marine Corps organizations will share information and provide training on DON IT and business transformation areas. The conference will provide the face to face reinforcement, clarifying information, and the ability for the DON IT community to engage and ask questions about newly established policies and processes.

The DON IT Conference is open to all DON, government, military and support contractor personnel. Military participants should wear the uniform of the day for all events. Civilians and contractors should wear appropriate business attire.

Approval for the conference by DON AA was predicated on the following: rental cars are not authorized for those traveling by air and attendees must use the lowest cost travel options in booking their flights and accommodations. Attendees must remember to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars when attending this event, and request approval for travel and attendance from their individual commands. Due to travel restrictions in place to minimize overall conference costs to the DON, registration for attendees in a TAD status is limited.

The tentative conference schedule is available for download below. Please note: The schedule is subject to change at any time so please check back for updates.

The signed approval memo is also available for download below.
