PEO-EIS eyes goals for 2004

The head of the Army's computer shop will focus this year on three goals: supporting soldiers waging the war on terrorism, awarding the first task orders in its new performance-based contract, and working closely with vendors to ensure that the crucial contract and other information technology programs succeed in the service.

Kevin Carroll, program executive officer in the Program Executive Office-Enterprise Information Systems, announced his objectives for 2004 during a March 8 interview at the Association of the United States Army's annual winter conference in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. He will further discuss his aims tomorrow and Thursday during PEO-EIS Industry Day in Arlington, Va.

The Army's computer shop, located at Fort Belvoir, Va., now oversees more than 100 people supporting soldiers waging the war on terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan. It will ensure that service and industry officials and soldiers receive the best hardware, software and IT support services, Carroll said.

PEO-EIS last year awarded the $1 billion Information Technology Enterprise Solutions contract, the first service procurement that will ask vendors how to solve IT problems instead of the Army telling them how to do it. It originally planned to announce the first ITES task order in mid-December, but it will now likely come in early April because the service wants the contract to work as advertised, he said.

The program executive office this year also wants to work closely with vendors on ITES and other IT contracts. The computer shop wants to build partnerships with them, Carroll said.
