Navy to open e-business office

The Navy within two months will open an electronic-business office to help service officials identify ways to increase efficiency through the use of electronic transactions.

Rear Adm. Keith W. Lippert, commander of the Naval Supply Systems Command, appointed Rear Adm. Linda J. Bird to head the

E-Business Operations Office. Bird will continue as vice commander, and the office will be located at the command's headquarters in Mechanicsburg, Pa. Bird will select a Senior Executive Service employee as deputy director.

Scheduled to open in early October, the E-Business Operations Office will help the command centralize control over 'several existing electronic-transaction and credit card systems,' the command said in a statement. The command manages the Navy's IMPAC purchases; 35,000 service personnel have the credit cards.
