SAN DIEGO (NNS) -- The commanding officer of Southwest Regional Maintenance Center, Capt. Michael Wiegand, was relieved of command by Commander, Navy Regional Maintenance Center, due to loss of confidence in his ability to command Nov. 8.

This decision stems from an investigation into contracting improprieties at Southwest Regional Maintenance Center. Further investigations into this matter continue.

Capt. Mike Fulgham, currently assigned as executive officer, Southwest Regional Maintenance Center, will be the acting commander until a relieving commanding officer is assigned.
