The Defense Information Systems Agency has rebrandedÂ itsÂ Continental U.S.Â Field Command organization to the name of “Global Operations Command” as DISA seeks to expand the organization’s mission set.
Global Operations Command will be responsible for the defense of networks that supportÂ 46 enterprise missions and services and the DISA-managed portion of the Defense Department‘s information networks, DISA said Monday.
DGOC will also act as aÂ Tier II computer network defense service provider for 108 mission partners that include five combatant commands, 15 defense agencies and organizations, nine cleared defense contractors and two federal agencies.
“The name change more accurately reflects the true mission of the organization, which is global defense and operations of DISAâs portion of the DOD Information Networks,â saidÂ Army Col. Paul Craft, DGON’s commander.
âOur mission extends far beyond the continental United States.â
The commandÂ will be housed in aÂ 164,000-square-foot, $100 million facility that is scheduled to have workers move in from June and a ribbon-cutting ceremony in August.
“[DGOC]Â is the service manager for the agencyâs worldwide Internet protocol infrastructure and services that makeup the Defense Information System Network, to include the non-secure IP Router Network, Secret IP Router Network, and IP voice and video services,” addedÂ Scott Rodakowski, civilian deputy director of DISAâsÂ operations center.
