PEO EIS Programs

PEO Perspective April 2018

Welcome to my first PEO Perspective as the official Program Executive Officer for Enterprise Information Systems! I was thrilled to return to PEO EIS in October 2017, but to be selected as the permanent PEO as of April 2 is an honor -- it is truly my dream job, and I thank you for your warm welcome. ASAALT Principal Military Deputy LTG Paul Ostrowski will host the official Assumption of Charter Ceremony here at Fort Belvoir later this month. I am looking forward to the months and years ahead as we work together to support our Army.

Earlier this month, PEO EIS had a significant presence at the Annual AFCEA Belvoir Industry Days event at the Gaylord National Harbor. Leaders from across government agencies, military and industry came together for two days of collaborative programming and discussions. It was my privilege to keynote the luncheon, and nearly all of our 35 program managers had a presence, either in panels or breakouts at the conference. It was an exciting experience for us to once again be a part of this vibrant annual event and it was our pleasure to engage with so many of our stakeholders and industry and government partners in one place. If we missed you at the conference, please reach out via our website Contact Us page or through Facebook or Twitter.

Our public outreach continues next month. PEO EIS CIO Manish Patel is an invited panelist at the FCW Balancing Agility, Security and Governance in the Cloud Event May 9 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Washington, D.C. Also, I have been invited to speak at the Annual C4ISRNET Conference at the Crystal City Renaissance Arlington Capital View May 10. We hope to see you at these events!

April is Sexual Assault Awareness month and offers us a chance to renew our commitment to an environment free from sexual harassment, intimidation and coercion. All EIS personnel are already familiar with the year-round training and awareness activities to ensure that the EIS family feels empowered in a safe, productive and equitable workplace.

April is also Month of the Military Child. PEO EIS is spotlighting members of our workforce who grew up in military families as part of our #PEOEISTeammateTuesday feature on our Facebook page. I think you’ll enjoy their spotlights, which will give insights into the unique experience of the military child from the adult perspective -- and from members of our workforce who chose to continue the tradition of service that their parents began. We are indebted to our military families -- they are the backbone supporting our Soldiers through their missions and deployments while holding down the responsibilities on the home front.

Thank you to all of our service members, military families and children, civilians and contractors -- you are such an essential part of our Nation’s defense and our Army’s ability to protect and defend. And many thanks, again, to all of you for welcoming me as the PEO. I look forward to serving with you.

Army Strong!
Cherie Smith, PEO EIS
