An official ceremony was held Oct. 9 at Fort Lee, Virginia, to recognize the Assumption of Charter for the Logistics Information Systems (LIS) program. Mr. Ricky Daniels assumed the product director charter in an event hosted by COL Harry Culclasure, Project Manager for the Army Enterprise Systems Integration Program (AESIP).

Product Director LIS provides the lifecycle management of all functional and technical aspects of current Army logistics information systems consistent with Department of Defense policies. These systems include the automation and sustainment of ammunition, maintenance, supply, property accountability, and finance. PD LIS manages a suite of Army logistics programs and products that provide key logistics information technology enablers in bridging to the single Army logistics enterprise.

“The transition of PD LIS program management responsibilities from the Software Engineering Center Tactical Logistics Directorate to the Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS) started over a year ago,” said COL Culclasure at the ceremony. “Despite this being the fourth realignment for the PD LIS group since 2000, the team has managed seamless operations without fail for its 160,000 users. Therefore, we did not want to change anything about the group; just the alignment, in order to continue these accomplishments.”

Mr. Daniels, a retired Army colonel, is a graduate of the Air Defense Artillery Basic Course, Infantry Advance Course, Systems Automation Course, Material Acquisition Management Course, Technical Management Course, Command and General Staff College, and the Acquisition Program Manager’s Course. As he accepted the charter, Mr. Daniels expressed enthusiasm for the opportunity to lead the program to continued success.
