At the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) you can ‘know the earth…show the way,’ but it may take more than just an undergraduate career to keep your GEOINT skills up-to-date. Enter the National Geospatial-Intelligence College.
Last week Booz Allen Hamilton announced it has been awarded a five-year $86 million contract to lead the NGA-NGC Learning Management and Advancement Program (LMAP).
“Learning services are evolving very quickly, moving away from traditional platform instruction to more informal and on-the-job solutions. At the same time, clients’ missions are evolving rapidly, and the time available to develop formal learning solutions has diminished,” said Bill Wansley, Senior Vice President at Booz Allen. “New and disruptive solutions are now becoming more important to help individuals achieve higher work performance in shorter periods of time.”
As part of this single award, firm fixed price contract, Booz Allen will help NGC achieve operational efficiencies through the delivery of innovative curriculum and learning content aimed at developing and strengthening a global geospatial workforce, Booz Allen’s press release stated.
The need for federal agencies to innovate and streamline their workforces will grow increasingly important as organizations look to plan and implement the Trump Administration’s federal government reforms. As ClearanceJobs reported in January, “President Trump’s hiring freeze is not a short-term measure meant to send a message to federal agencies and the American people. In 90 days (about this time in April), the Office of Management and Budget is to “recommend a long-term plan to reduce the size of the Federal Government’s workforce through attrition.”
The end goal is not just to reduce the size of the federal government, but to make performance more efficient across the government workforce.
