New mobile device policy planned for DOD

The Defense Department is working on the draft of a new policy governing the use of mobile technology.

Defense Information Systems Agency CTO Dave Mihelcic let the news slip March 17 at the AFCEA Mobile Technologies conference in Washington, DC. He said the draft comprises "common sense policies" for the use of commercial mobile technologies without endangering the Global Information Grid, and will include rules for accreditation and flexible spectrum utilization.

This will likely include governance for the security and use of mobile devices like smart phones and iPads, if the chatter at the conference is any indication.

According to DISA public affairs, there's no more information at this point, but more news may be available in coming weeks.

Do you think this policy development has a direct effect on the delay of the Mobile App IDIQ that is/was due to come out of ARMY PEO EIS (MDADS)? Thanks.
