The Army’s chief information officer has restructured his office to improve information technology management servicewide.

"We realigned to account for the major changes in the way the Army does business and in the way that we, the CIO/G-6, do business," said Lt. Gen. Steve Boutelle in an April 1 statement. "The Army is executing its most profound restructuring in more than 50 years and eliminating irrelevant policies, processes and doctrines."

An Army official revealed the realignment of the Office of the CIO at an industry event last month. It consists of 10 offices including:

• CIO.

• Deputy CIO-Army Reserve.

• Chief Integration Office.

• Director of Technology.

• Architecture, Operations, Networks & Space.

• Governance, Acquisition and Chief Knowledge Office.

• Information Resource Integration.

• Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems.

• Network Enterprise Technology Command.

• Army Enterprise Integration Oversight Office.

During the past nine months, Army IT officials clarified roles, improved accountability and restated the office’s vision, mission and goals. They also developed a common vision, organization model, governance structure and execution plan, Boutelle said.

"To improve accountability, we now have a single 'belly button' for our core processes and functions," Boutelle said. "Army leaders also have a clearer understanding about our vision and how the Army will get there. And, we have refocused our resources to increase effectiveness and better serve the warfighter."

Army IT officials previously reorganized the Office of the CIO in 2001. But the realignment came before incorporating the offices of Network Enterprise Technology Command, the Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems and the Army Enterprise Integration Oversight Office.
