When the U.S. military deployed to West Africa to support the fight against Ebola, it needed plenty of trained medical and logistics personnel. But they also needed good maps -- something the country didn't have last October. It does now, thanks to the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, and NGA's new director says the Ebola response is the start of what he says will be "unprecedented transparency" for his agency. More from Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu.

Spanning the Globe, Geospatially

Every day, one federal agency simultaneously serves the global intelligence needs of the American military, the U.S. Intelligence Community, and, increasingly, domestic first responders. In this episode of AFCEA Answers, Ellen McCarthy, chief operating officer of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), discusses how "managing through portfolios" makes sense during a new era of intelligence challenges and fiscal restraint. We'll also discuss how links with industry and academia are driving mission-focused innovations, like NGA's "Map of the World". And McCarthy talks about educating and recruiting the next generation of NGA innovators.

Bill Welch, partner at McMahon, Welch and Learned

The National Geospatial Intelligence Agency said it would re-evaluate proposals and make a new award decision in response to a protest from Logistics 2020. But NGA said it wouldn't re-open the competition or look at any revisions. The proposals had already expired. But Logistics 2020 argued it couldn't produce what it originally said it could. GAO denied the Logistics 2020 proposal. Bill Welch, partner at McMahon, Welch and Learned, discusses this in an article he wrote for the Washington Business Journal and with In Depth with Francis Rose.
