The purpose of the DON IT conference is to:

  1. Engage with senior leaders, program managers, and the DON IT community to examine and discuss pertinent IT topics;/li>
  2. e 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; and
  3. Provide IT-related training that will provide credits toward continuous learning (SECNAVINST 1543.2 requires that Cyberspace/IT workforce members have 40 hours of continuous learning per year).

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.

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.
