Rear Adm. Charles L. Munns, director of the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet, will leave his position later this year to take over as commander of the Atlantic Fleet Submarine Force in Norfolk, Va.
Munns, who was appointed to lead the $8.82 billion NMCI effort in February 2002, will also get a promotion to three-star vice admiral and will take over the helm of the Submarine Allied Command.
Before the NMCI post, Munns commanded the Navy's Submarine Group Eight and Submarines, Allied Forces South, in Naples, Italy.
It is unclear who will replace him. Munns was unavailable for comment.
Among his accomplishments, Munns led the Navy to get a tighter grip on its legacy applications. IT officials and contractors have reduced the number of apps the service uses from a high of 100,000 in the summer of 2001 to currently less than 10,000.
'For him to go to the senior operational submarine command in the Navy is a great compliment to him,' said Capt. Chris Christopher, deputy director for future operations, communications and business initiatives in the NMCI program office.
