SPAWAR systems center has new chief

In a ceremony today, Navy Capt. Peggy A. Feldmann will officially take over as director of the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command's IT Center in New Orleans. It marks the first time a military commanding officer has led the organization.

Feldmann previously worked as program manager for the Navy Standards Integrated Personnel System, a multimillion-dollar program at the SPAWAR center. Navy brass are preparing to give NSIPS the green light for full deployment this fall. It combines four legacy personnel and pay systems for active-duty and Reserve members.

NSIPS is one of several human resource systems being developed at the center as part of a Defense Department initiative to consolidate and integrate military pay and personnel programs. By early 2006, all the services' systems will be integrated into the Defense Integrated Manpower and Human Resource System.

Feldmann formerly worked with the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet program. She also has worked at the Naval Oceanographic R&D Activity in St. Louis.

The SPAWAR center has 900 employees. The previous director, H. Dale Galloway, retired earlier this month.
