Alexis Ross, formerly the deputy assistant secretary of the Army for strategy and acquisition reform, has moved to the Office of the Secretary of Defense to serve as a deputy chief of staff.

Ross spearheaded the Army's intellectual property and advanced manufacturing policies, both released over the past year and approved by the service's acquisition chief, Bruce Jette.

Ross previously worked on intellectual property issues with Rep. Mac Thornberry's (R-TX) reform team.

Brian Raftery has taken over as the acting DASA for strategy and acquisition reform, as of Ross' departure on Nov. 18, Army spokesman Matt Ociepka told Inside Defense today.
