WYNNE-LED GROUP TO PITCH IT SYSTEM RECOMMENDATIONS TO DOD
An industry group led by former Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne is putting the finishing touches on a report that recommends overhauling DOD’s acquisition of IT systems.
The IT Acquisition Advisory Council (IT-AAC) -- chaired by Wynne and co-chaired by Kevin Carroll, the Army’s former program executive officer for enterprise information systems -- is comprised of retired Pentagon officials such as Lewis Shepherd, former chief technology officer of the Defense Intelligence Agency, retired Air Force Maj. Gen. Paul Nielsen and Dave Oliver, now EADS North America’s chief operations officer. Many of the group’s members now work in the commercial world.
