Intelligence Community Moves to Coordinate Commercial Procurement Programs

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency is developing a process to align commercial technology requirements across the U.S. intelligence community and avoid unnecessary duplication of procurement efforts, SpaceNews reported Wednesday.

Frank Avila, deputy director of commercial and business operations at NGA, said the agency will collect information from agencies that make up the “National System for GEOINT” in order to manage data analytics demands.

NSG participants include the IC, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, military departments, combatant commands and international partners.

“We need to really start collaborating and coordinating procurements of commercial solutions, and think of commercial as the first solution that we should be looking at, rather than government developed solutions,” Avila was quoted as saying by SpaceNews.
