PEO Perspective August 2014
The dog days of summer are upon us as we transition into August and begin the work of wrapping up fiscal year 2014 and gearing up for the new fiscal year. This fiscal year has been spent adjusting to new budget realities and navigating the changing needs of the Army. Through it all, we have made remarkable progress thanks to our people. The PEO EIS team is a stellar example of rising to challenges, and persevering in order to deliver critical products and services to meet Army requirements in support of the Soldier – on time and within constrained budgets.
We began gearing up for the upcoming fiscal year a couple of months ago. While the POM process and assessments of upcoming expected contracting actions and milestones across the year are helping us prepare within our program offices, we also conducted an employee climate survey to assess the overall health of our organization coming out of some particularly challenging times. Our people are our most important resource and we know that to be successful as the Army posture continues to change will require the full strength of our team. The climate survey highlighted a lot of things we’re doing well and some things that we’ll be focused on moving forward and I am excited about the coming year and exciting opportunities!
We always welcome great ideas and solutions that you think would benefit the Army, so please feel free to submit white papers through the submission button on the home page of our website.
As summer vacations come to a close and families prepare to send their children back to school, please continue to remain vigilant about summer safety. The coming months promise to bring new challenges and opportunities as we welcome a new fiscal year. We have a great many plans and engagements coming up in the fall – stay tuned for more information, and thank you for your continued support to PEO EIS and the Army!
