- US Fleet Forces implemented a new Concept of Operations that emphasized contingency planning, rapid response, agility, scalability and maneuver. The Navy Surgeon General directed a bottom up evaluation of Naval Expeditionary Health to evaluate its readiness to support the warfighter under this concept.
- WBB conducted a Capabilities Based Assessment (CBA) and produced a Naval Expeditionary Health Service Support (NEHSS) Initial Capabilities Document (ICD) in accordance with the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS). The work demonstrated WBB’s ability to adroitly apply the JCIDS process across the Range of Military Operations (ROMO) and to facilitate constructive inputs across the Naval Medicine Enterprise. This three phased analysis that defined expeditionary health missions, functions, capabilities, CONOPS, and prioritized capability gaps. WBB developed a strategic action management plan that included a Roadmap, ten DOTmLPF Non-materiel Change Recommendations (DCR), and two Alternatives Analysis (AA) for Medical Adaptive Force Packaging and Patient Movement systems. WBB also recommended organizational changes to improve Navy Medicine responsiveness to evolving warfighting requirements.
- As a result of this effort, the Navy Surgeon General approved an organizational realignment within BUMED, establishing the new flag officer-led Capability Development and Integration Directorate in order to implement proposed solutions to achieve expeditionary health “wholeness.” WBB provided this new organization an analysis of JCIDS requirements and acquisition support to successfully stand up the new organization and to implement the Surgeon General’s strategic plan.
