How the Navy is Measuring Success in Tech Acquisition

Justin Fanelli, Acting CTO and PEO Digital Technical Director, Department of the Navy

Metrics are critical to assessing a contract’s or program’s success in IT procurement at the Navy. Measuring success can be difficult without these clear parameters.

Justin Fanelli, acting CTO at the Department of the Navy and technical director at Navy PEO Digital and Enterprise Services, discussed with us at AFCEA West the ways in which the Navy is measuring program success. He said when a program does not work, inertia needs to be fought. “When something moves, we take it down,” he said.

He also highlights how the Navy is encouraging more entrants into the acquisition process and how the Navy partners with industry to scale innovation.
