Enterprise Maintenance and Sustainment Transformation – Phase II

NCMS Project #: 141066

Problem: As commercial industries across the U.S. work to adapt their global supply, maintenance, logistics, financial, contractual, and support infrastructure to remain competitive in the global environment, effective applications of innovative methodologies supported by new technologies are required.The Department of the Navy(DON) faces similar challenges.

Benefit: Developing and implementing strategies, roadmaps, and technologies to resolve issues facing a large, global, complex enterprise, such as the DON, will provide blueprints to the public and American businesses for implementing similar strategies to improve their competitiveness.  Execution of the Phase II project tasks will prove, through the modernization and innovation of DON processes such as implementing strong cybersecurity controls and improving auditability, that sustainment efficiencies can lead to lower overall costs, higher quality of goods and services, and job creation.  

Solution/Approach: Phase I accomplished building foundational elements.  Phase II is required in order to build upon and execute the strategies developed by DON Office of the Chief Management Officer (OCMO) and support the DON in accomplishing additional initiatives needed as well as to meet the objectives defined in the National Defense Strategy.
