The Navy acquisition executive is dismantling the program executive office for enterprise information systems and creating two separate offices.

PEO EIS will be divided into an executive office for digital and enterprise services as well as an office for manpower, logistics and business solutions, Hondo Geurts wrote in a May 4 memo. The transition begins this month and will be completed in August.

Ruth Youngs Lew, the executive officer at PEO EIS, will become "PEO Digital." Les Hubbard, executive director at PEO EIS, will lead "PEO MLB," according to Geurts.

In the same memo, Geurts wrote that the senior civilian for information warfare and enterprise services will oversee two "lines of effort" regarding the restructuring. One effort will focus on realigning each program office into one of the two new executive offices.

"LOE 2 will focus on assessment and realignment of related Navy and Marine Corps capabilities that currently reside outside of PEO EIS into the appropriate new PEO to address gaps in capability and provide portfolio wholeness," he wrote.

Among other programs, PEO EIS was responsible for managing the Next Generation Enterprise Network program, which delivers the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet.
