Inside the Reporter's Notebook: Category management launches five pilots; more vendor past performance data
In this edition of Inside the Reporter's Notebook, Executive Editor Jason Miller shares news and buzz about the IT and acquisition communities.
The Defense Intelligence Agency will inaugurate its new Open Innovation Gateway on Wednesday, as part of its strategy to bring new technologies into the intelligence community from non-traditional vendors, and to buy new capabilities within weeks instead of years.
Defense official: Head of Defense Intelligence Agency nudged aside, deputy also quitting
As the Intelligence Community gets ready for the launch of shared IT environment ICITE, some of the biggest hurdles may be human and not technical ones.
Defense Intelligence Agency chief Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn told the House Intelligence Committee that his agency has to assume that former National Security Agency analyst Edward Snowden took every document he accessed, and that much of it concerned Pentagon programs.
On this week's show, Dan Doney, the Defense Intelligence Agency's chief innovation officer, spends the full hour with Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu to talk about a few key elements of DIA's 2014 innovation strategy.
The 'Needipedia' project is designed to stay within federal procurement law, but it short cuts some of the steps that cause agencies to wait months or years to solve current-day problems. DIA releases RFPs connected to an ongoing Broad Agency Announcement to give contractors a path to offer technology more directly.
DoD's Health Management Systems Modernization Program seeks input from vendors on the current capabilities of electronic health records in the commercial market. The Defense Intelligence Agency issued a draft request for proposals in late September for the multiple-award Enhanced Solutions for the Information Technology Enterprise (E-SITE) contract, which could be worth $6 billion.
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence said the lead agencies under the IC IT Enterprise program launched a standard desktop, a secure community cloud and an apps store in mid-August. Al Tarasiuk, the assistant DNI and intelligence community chief information officer, said the key to this effort was having an ICwide agreed-upon security architecture and policies.
Dan Doney, the new chief innovation officer at the Defense Intelligence Agency, talks about the agency's plan to change the way it interacts with industry and brings innovation to government.
Grant Schneider, the Defense Intelligence Agency's chief information officer, said his agency and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency will be among the first agencies to move its top secret/sensitive compartmentalized information into Intelligence Community's IT Enterprise program this summer. The two agencies are developing the virtualized desktop and other tools for launch in late fiscal 2013.

Intelligence Community Information Technology Enterprise will reach initial operating capability next March on the way to full implementation in 2018. The NGA and DIA are building a common desktop for all of the intelligence community agencies.
New director of the Defense Intelligence Agency challenges his workers to better serve their customers — both military and private sector — by being more responsive, timely and relevant.
Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who took the "unheard-of" step of going public with his concerns about ineffective wartime intelligence in Afghanistan two years ago, is the new director of the Defense Intelligence Agency.
The Pentagon is rebranding and reorganizing its clandestine spy shop, sending more of its case officers to work alongside CIA officers to gather intelligence in places like China, after a decade of focusing intensely on war zones.
Agencies are struggling to keep up with the tremendous amount of data being created every day. DIA deputy director David Shedd said too much information and not having the right IT to sift through it is the biggest remaining challenge the government faces. Kshemendra Paul, the program manager for the Information Sharing Environment, said tagging and standards, such as NIEM, could help solve the data deluge.
Chief information officers in the intelligence community said despite cultural challenges, it makes sense to treat the IC as one IT enterprise. They owe an implementation plan to IC agency heads by the end of this year.
After a decade of uninterrupted spending growth, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence has submitted budget cutting plans for intelligence agencies to the White House. The intelligence community will try to save money mostly through IT efficiencies, and will try to protect its civilian workforce while drawing down on its reliance upon contractors.
General Dynamics IT engineers will help ensure the security of DIA information and defend the agency's computer networks. The company still needs to hire an additional 80 employees to support the contract.
The Defense Intelligence Agency is now 50 years old, but its current and former leaders say the last 10 have come to define it as an agency.
