Mike Griffin, undersecretary of defense for research and engineering, said the move to transfer the Strategic Capabilities Office to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency will help resolve bureaucracy issues, Defense News reported Friday. 

Griffin, a 2019 Wash100 Award recipient, told reporters that the SCO’s move to DARPA will help leaders oversee the office “efficiently without adding a whole new superstructure”. Griffin will continue working with congressional oversight committees to address concerns on the reorganization which is expected to be addressed in the Armed Services committees’ final 2020 defense authorization bill over the coming weeks. 

Griffin’s comments come after Chris Shank stepped down as SCO director in June following his appointment to the role in August 2018.
