On DoD: Navy reports first results from its new Innovation Cell

In March, the Navy announced a new project to speed its adoption of commercial information technology and short-circuit the most cumbersome parts of the government acquisition process.

The Innovation Cell, a project of the service’s Program Executive Office for Information Systems, submitted three broad “enterprise challenges” to industry with the objective of acquiring new solutions within one year.

On this week’s show, two guests from PEO-EIS describe how they met that goal for two out of the three enterprise challenges and what they’ve learned from the process so far. Victor Gavin leads PEO-EIS as the program executive officer, and Dan Delgrosso is the office’s technical director.
