News Release


Release No: 599-98
November 18, 1998


The Department of Defense today announced a revised Internet website for Defense reform activities. Available at www.defenselink.mil/dodreform, this new website will provide public access to reform initiatives being sponsored and institutionalized by the Department's leadership.

The new format includes access to information about ongoing reforms across the Department. The site features several new aspects: vignettes which spotlight reform success stories and recognize individuals and organizations who are accomplishing real change; a databank of quotations from individuals in both government and industry to demonstrate the scope of reform efforts underway; and a mechanism for interested employees and others to submit comments. This comment feature allows DoD employees in particular to exchange information on all aspects of reform.

Applauding the new website, William P. Houley, director of the Defense Reform Initiative office, commented, "Defense reform is a continuous improvement process to put the Department on the right path to 'meet' the new century. This new website captures the way the Department's reforms are making support operations as flexible, lean and efficient as the warfighters they support."
