AUG. 21—Less than two weeks before the expected award of the Navy's $10 billion outsourcing procurement, service officials have assigned a new deputy director to the organization that doles out command and control systems funding.

Capt. Richard J. Maudlin, the Joint Chiefs of Staff's deputy director for command, control, communications and computer operations, has been reassigned as the deputy director and fleet liaison for Space, Information Warfare, Command and Control for the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations, the Pentagon announced today.

Maudlin succeeds Capt. Richard E. Brooks, who is becoming the Atlantic Fleet's Patrol and Reconnaissance Force commander in Norfolk, Va. Navy officials have selected Brooks and Maudlin to become one-star rear admirals, the announcement said.

Maudlin will work with Navy fleet organizations, which want adequate performance from the Defense Information Systems Agency's Defense Information Systems Network. The Navy will use the contractor it chooses for the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet to provide voice, video and data services after the procurement's expected award Sept. 1 [see story at].
