NORFOLK (NNS) -- Commander, Navy Regional Maintenance Center, Rear Adm. James Downey, held a commanders conference at Naval Station Norfolk March 27 with the commanding officers of his six regional maintenance centers (RMCs), marking the first time the group had convened in CNRMC's headquarters facility.
The primary focal point of Downey's agenda topics was Naval Sea systems Command's (NAVSEA) Priority One initiative, the on-time delivery of ships and submarines out of availabilities, as well as the many other efforts underway at the RMCs to support culture of affordability efforts, cybersecurity initiatives, personnel and manning, and high velocity learning (HVL) plans across the RMCs.
"This is an important event. One where I will hear from each of the RMC's commanding officers on the health and status of their critical programs and initiatives, especially those that support our priority to complete availabilities on-time and within budget," said Downey.
