Navy, Marine Corps Achieve IT Savings Ahead of Target Date
November 26, 2012
The Navy and Marine Corps has achieved more than $100 million in information technology savings in the last year, according to Department of Navy Chief Information Officer Terry Halvorsen.
The savings come from consolidating IT business systems and data centers, increasing use of enterprise software licenses and reducing printing and mobile device costs, Halvorsen told reporters Monday.
The services were directed by Navy Undersecretary Robert Work to cut their combined $7.8 billion IT budget by 25 percent, or roughly $2 billion, by 2017. Halvorsen said the services are on track to reach that savings goal.
