Business Transformation Initiative Director Announced

The Department of Defense announced today that Dr. Paul A. Tibbits was appointed director of the Business Modernization and Systems Integration Program Office, within the Business Management Modernization Program (BMMP).

BMMP is the Department of Defense business transformation initiative. In his role as director, Tibbits will oversee changes to the departments business processes to achieve efficiencies and eliminate redundant and non-compatible systems. He will coordinate an integrated department-wide approach to streamline, reengineer, and standardize Department of Defenses business practices. Overall, this program will enable the department to transition from the current collection of predominantly incompatible and inadequate business systems to an integrated network of systems, based on the uniform implementation of standard requirements across the department.

Prior to this assignment, Tibbits was the principal and founding member of a consulting firm dedicated to increasing client services and product recognition through the integration of strategic and business planning, partnership and alliance development, and strategic marketing. In this capacity, he served as the lead consultant to the Presidential Task Force on Health Care Reform for Veterans. Previously, Tibbits served 26 years with the U.S. Navy, capping his career as the military health system's program executive officer for information technology.

Tibbits holds a medical degree from Tulanes School of Medicine and a bachelors degree in biology from Loyola University. He is board certified in internal medicine and cardiology.
