Retired admiral tapped to steer CSC's pursuit of NGEN contract

Rear Admiral Kenneth Deutsch (Ret.) has been named vice president and lead executive for Computer Sciences Corp.’s pursuit of the Navy Department’s $14.5 billion Next Generation Enterprise Network contract, the company announced Oct. 21.

In this role, Deutsch will lead CSC’s NGEN strategy, transition and execution. He will report directly to Alan Weakley, president of CSC’s North American Public Sector Defense Group.

Deutsch joined CSC in 2009 as vice president and general manager for information dominance programs within the Defense and Intelligence group, and as CSC’s Defense Department cyber account executive.

During his 31-year Navy career, Deutsch was thoroughly involved in all aspects of naval command and control, communications and enterprise networks. Operationally, he commanded patrol and reconnaissance forces at the squadron, wing, group and task force levels, and was the commander of forces for flying combat missions in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, the announcement said.

He also served as the chief of the communications and computer networks division, J6T, for the Joint Chiefs of Staff and as deputy for resources and requirements in the Space and Information Warfare, Command and Control Division, in the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations.

The Navy earlier this month released a draft request for proposals for NGEN program, offering planning information and seeking questions and comments from contractors interested in bidding on the contract or contracts.

The Navy will hold an NGEN industry day on Oct. 28, at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center. Comments are due to the Naval Enterprise Networks program management office by Oct. 30.

If he's retired, stay retired? So because he has a new job his 30 plus years of service are meaningless and he doesn't deserve any compensation for them? If you're that jealous of his retired pay, join the military and serve for 30 years yourself.

I'm not sure what the point of such an article is, other than to "put out there in the universe" that CSC has WAYYY more resources than "you" ever will, and you may as well not even try to bid against them. Not exactly news... hope it's not found out that the "reporter" owns CSC stock :-)

How about full disclosure? What is the government pension of Rear Admiral Kenneth Deutsch (Ret.)? And what is his new private salary estimated to be with CSC? Wonder why peopls are mad? If he's retired, stay retired and step aside to let someone else equally qualified land this job, otherwise give up the pension and get to work.

This is another way of getting big contracts- A Big Game by Big Corporations.
