Lt. Gen. Jason Evans has received the Senate’s confirmation to serve as deputy chief of staff, G-9, at the Department of the Army.
His newly established role succeeds the former position of assistant chief of staff for installation management, an old function that the Army changed to correspond with aÂ three-star rank, the service branch said Friday.
Evans will operate from the Pentagon to oversee the Army’s portfolio ofÂ installations as part of the service branch’sÂ reformed approach to installation management. This portfolio includes projects onÂ military construction, housing, energy and water security, child care andÂ environmental management.
The lieutenant general will also function as a principal advisor to theÂ assistant secretariesÂ of the Army for installations, energy and environment and manpower and reserve affairs management.
The service branch launched its installation reform initiative in early March to reorganizeÂ Army Installation Management Command as major component ofÂ Army Materiel Command. AMC’s commander now also holds the task to co-chairÂ installation management processes with the assistant secretary of the Army for IE&E.
