I told you here a few weeks ago I would update you when I was briefed on the Fleet Functional Area Manager (FAM) effort and the list of tools they were reviewing. RADM Meek and his team came over yesterday and presented a list of ~50 applications along with a recommendation to kill/fix/keep/sunset for each one. I attached the brief here so that you can review the list and decisions that are being made. You’ll see that the total list of applications has grown to almost 900 already (and getting bigger).
I believe we’ve made great progress the past seven weeks. We have the right people involved now and ADM Walsh and I are fully aligned on what needs to be done. I want our Sailors to know that we are going to keep at this until we review every application in the Fleet.
I’ll be on travel next week spending Thanksgiving with our Sailors underway in the Arabian Gulf and serving as IAs in the CENTCOM AOR. I look forward to your feedback on the update above when I return.
All the best, JCHjr
