Rear Adm. John Korka Commander NAVFAC
Naval Facilities Engineering Command has renamed itself to highlight the organization’s responsibilities in technology and technical service delivery.
NAVFAC, now named Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command, made this change to emphasize its role to support shore facilities, expeditionary engineering systems and base operations, the U.S. Navy said Thursday.
The move also aims to better present NAVFAC as an authority for real estate procurement, facility construction and engineering, disposal, management and environmental services.
“This change better reflects the full spectrum of critical work that NAVFAC does to enable warfighter lethality, and it helps current and potential future supported activities understand the technical and procurement authority assigned to NAVFAC,” said Rear Adm. John Korka, NAVFAC commander and chief of civil engineers.
