Governance forums enable OSD to bring to bear the power of a collective voice in driving the delivery of OSD IT requirements by a single IT commodity service provider. They strengthen communications with customers and IT service providers, and help change the paradigm from provider-led to customer-led.
The two active governance forums for OSD Information Technology are:
OSD IT Enterprise Committee
– Acts as the voice of OSD decision-making body to vet issues and recommendations before submitting decisions and recommendations to the OSD Management Forum for decision and action.
Pentagon Area Customer Council
- Guides and champions Pentagon Area IT efforts, recommendations, and resources required to successfully modernize the IT enterprise. The PACC determines the OSD Enterprise's position on IT related issues.
