Flynn appointed Navy PEO-EIS

Rear Adm. Timothy V. Flynn III has been assigned as the Navy's new program executive officer for enterprise information systems.

Flynn currently serves as vice commander of the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command in San Diego. His new assignment was announced today by Adm. Michael G. Mullen, chief of naval operations. Flynn replaces Rear Adm. James B. Godwin III, who is retiring effective Oct. 1.

Godwin became the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet director two years ago. NMCI, a multibillion-dollar program headed up by prime contractor, EDS Corp., is a consolidated voice, video and data portal that will eventually link more than 500,000 sailors and Marines at roughly 1,000 sites across the country and in the Far East.

Earlier this year, the NMCI office was realigned under the Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems structure, which replaced PEO IT. The Navy's enterprise resource planning effort, Base Level Information Infrastructure and ONE-NET initiatives were also aligned under PEO EIS.

Flynn graduated from the United States Naval Academy with a bachelor's degree in marine engineering. He also has master's degrees in national security affairs and mechanical engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School.
