 Osborne led a transformation team in COMMO and again advised another DCI Admiral Stansfield Turner. Two of their recommendations impacted NIC telecommunications and creation of CIA’s move to separate telecommunications and information management. One of the other significant events was the participation in the NIC’s decision to no longer depend on host government’s to provide protection for US Embassies and personnel but for the USA to include such matters in NIC protection of US property and personnel.

1976-1981 As the only known CIA Spy Manager with six years COMSEC experience, Osborne was able to transfer the NIC especially on improving NIC tech information across agencies and departments.

1982-1984 As Chief CI for the Directorate of Operation’s Libya Branch, again Osborne was well-positioned to use past transformation experiences especially knowledge of CIA Commo to improve the DO’s handling of vital and important raw information from the field so that it went through the maze of barriers easier and faster to the NIC customer.

1984-1988 Private sector experiences as an international food broker, commercial mortgage broker and security and sales director for one of the few Black owned armored car companies in the world provided more experiences and insights into what works and what does not work. Osborne even had the experience of working with the FBI to investigate a million dollar armored car robbery.

1988-1994 Return to govt via tempo jobs at the Department of Education and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) in l988 and l989. The latter OPM opportunity besides serving as the platform to continue as a change agent allowed Osborne to re-enter government service but now in government procurement as an advocate for small business owners, He began learning and keeping book on many things, but the government vertical systems that don’t work such as Equal Employment Opportunity and the Inspector General enabled some of us to gain greater understanding of government barriers and challenges to equality and justice. With the peer election of Osborne to serve as the Director OSDBU, He and other key other government employees worked through Public Law 95-507 to even improve Congressional understanding of the adversities impacting small business. The OSDBU Director experiences resulted in Osborne assisting in the creation of FAR Part 10 which was part of the stimulus that eliminated my OPM job as Director OSDBU when I retired in l994.
