Krzysko latest undersecretary in Defense business agency

A Defense Department acquisition and procurement guru has a new title and expanded responsibilities, a senior Defense leader announced yesterday.

Mark Krzysko, the former deputy director of Defense procurement and acquisition policy, was recently assigned as the assistant deputy undersecretary of Defense for strategic sourcing and acquisition processes.

Krzysko reports to Paul Brinkley, deputy undersecretary of Defense and director of the newly established Business Transformation Agency (BTA), and now serves as the primary adviser on issues related to acquisition sourcing processes and initiatives across the DOD.

Brinkley spoke at an Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association luncheon yesterday, describing Krzysko's new job as 'a business leadership role to mine information.'

In October, the Defense Department established BTA to centrally manage 18 of its largest departmentwide business programs. DOD folded the Business Management Modernization Program office, which was responsible for integrating the department's business systems, into BTA.

Brinkley said DOD has broken down its business transformation objectives by setting up goals to accomplish every six months for the next 10 years.
