Army IT office gets Iraq duty

Although the Army's Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems has existed for only a year, the systems it supports are seeing duty in the conflict in Iraq.

The office has about 75 people in the Middle East supporting the war effort, most of them contractors, said Kevin Carroll, program executive officer for PEO EIS.

One program being used in Iraq is the Transportation Coordinator's Automated Information for Movement System, said Gregory Kee, deputy program executive officer. The system provides mobile units that allow people in the field to check the status of ordered goods. It is supported by Anteon International Corp., Fairfax, Va., and DynCorp, now part of Computer Sciences Corp., El Segundo, Calif.

The EIS office offers other Army bases telecommunication and information business services, and spends about $2 billion a year, Carroll said.
