Brad Carson, formerly acting undersecretary for personnel and readiness at the Defense Department,Â has said his efforts to update the military personnel management processes and theÂ âForce of the Futureâ initiative will prevail, Military Times reported Monday.
Andrew Tilghman writes Carson made the remarks at the Center for Strategic and International StudiesÂ in Washington days after he stepped down from his position Friday.
Peter Levine, deputy chief management officer at DoD, wasÂ appointed to succeed Carson in the role.
Scott MaucioneÂ also reported for Federal News Radio that Carson spearheadedÂ efforts to allow women to serve in military positions and extend maternity leave for servicewomen during his time at the Pentagon.
He told event attendeesÂ that there will be more changes to DoDâs personnel system in the next few weeks.
Carson noted that he expects Congress to approve the Force of the Futureâs third tranche, which aims to introduce changes to the Pentagonâs âup or outâ promotion system for military officers under the Defense Officer Personnel Management Act, Maucione reports.
