Today s Navy and Marine Corps operate in challenging and complex times. As we transition from a decade of fighting two wars, we are faced with the competing realities of shrinking defense budgets and rising maritime security challenges. Throughout our history, the Navy and Marine Corps team has been called on to act in both war and in peace, and today will play an ever larger and a more vital role on the world stage. We must maintain our ability to be present, not just at the right time, but all the time. Presence is what the Navy and the Marine Corps is all about and the way we maintain presence is to protect our top four priorities people, platforms, power and partnerships. The current fiscal environment demands all Department of the Navy DON leaders critically examine every aspect of the business enterprise to improve effectiveness and to drive down the cost of business operations. This is an all hands effort every precious tax dollar spent unwisely takes money away from the operational capabilities and readiness of our global force. There are many efforts underway within the Department of Defense that require our attention, however it is important that we remain focused on our primary responsibility of managing and continually improving the department. To this end, the FY14-16 DON Transformation Plan sets forth the transformation priorities for the department and establishes a clear path forward for both business transformation and institutional reform. While bold action is necessary, we will use data to manage risk and make prudent choices that align our resources to the nation s strategic interests. Making changes within any large organization is always difficult, but I am confident that through the can-do spirit of the Navy and Marine Corps team, we will succeed.
