Increasing our response capability to reach geographically dispersed family members of our active and reserve components remain at the forefront of our efforts. We will continue our efforts, within our budgetary constraints, to provide resources and services to IA/GSA families, families of wounded, ill or injured and our ombudsmen network that supports them.
We will continue to explore creative solutions to overcome impediments to full utilization of technology solutions that equip us to maintain unfettered communications with families.
Our primary focus remains on delivering the best services at the right time and in the right place. As we continue to address the needs of Sailors and their families, our guiding principles continue to:
- Target our resources to the most critical requirements, focusing on our fleet and family readiness, resilience and quality of life;
- Aggressively identify opportunities to eliminate redundancies, under-utilized services and outdated standards of practice;
- Ensure consistent quality of service and performance standards across all of our installations; and
- Refine, strengthen, align and integrate our family support planning capabilities and processes to ensure optimized results.
