PEO Perspective

Mr. Douglas Wiltsie

April 2014

As we welcome the warmer weather of spring and celebrate the renewal that it brings, we as an Army community are also renewing our commitment to an environment free from sexual harassment, intimidation, coercion or assault across the Army. SEC Hagel has reiterated on several occasions his commitment to an environment of zero tolerance for sexual harassment throughout the services and I stand together with our leadership. April is Sexual Assault Awareness month in the Army, and PEO EIS outreach includes a climate survey, a strong Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention (SHARP) plan, and training and awareness activities throughout the year to ensure that everyone in the PEO EIS family of Soldiers, civilians and contractors enjoys a safe, productive and equitable workplace, and feels empowered to speak up. More information about how we’re addressing this very important issue can be found on our website , along with links to Army policies and memoranda, the President’s proclamation, and other tools and resources to educate the workforce and the public.

On Mar. 18, LTG Robert Ferrell, the new CIO-G6, spoke at AFCEA Nova’s Army IT Day, where he discussed the Army’s commitment to network modernization via increasing bandwidth speed and IT capacity. His statement underlines the importance of our network and clearly shows the connection between the PEO EIS priorities and the Army’s priority of network modernization. We must continue taking positive strides to effectively change the way we communicate—- the Army depends on a reliable, more efficient network, and PEO EIS will deliver. A warm welcome to LTG Ferrell, and I look forward to continuing the important partnership we’ve built with the CIO/G-6 in pursuit of network modernization and Force 2525.

My project managers (PM) from Army Enterprise Systems Integration Program (AESIP), Defense Communications and Army Transmission Systems (DCATS) and Installation Information Infrastructure – Communications and Capabilities (I3C2) also participated in an afternoon panel moderated by former PEO EIS, Mr. Kevin Carroll, at Army IT Day. The PMs focused on procurement opportunities and important developments and upcoming milestones within their programs, facilitating an interesting discussion between our acquisition leadership and our industry partners.

As part of this ongoing conversation with our partners, PEO EIS’ Project Director Enterprise Services held a Unified Capabilities Information Exchange at Fort Belvoir on Mar. 12.  The exchange included information on the Army’s plans for voice, video, data, and collaboration across the NIPRNet and SIPRNet, which I have also discussed in several recent media interviews.

Finally, I am proud to announce that PEO EIS’ Product Manager Medical Communications for Combat Casualty Care (MC4) is the recipient of the Excellence.gov award for Excellence in IT Health. The award, sponsored by The American Council for Technology-Industry Advisory Council (ACT-IAC), was announced Mar. 24. Congratulations to the hard-working team at MC4 on the successful implementation of their life-saving EMR system.
