NGA eyes digital content-delivery system

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency is looking for a contractor to help it test a computerized system for delivering agency products and services to military customers, according to a July 9 Federal Business Opportunities notice.

The pilot project is designed to test the tenets of a new NGA program called Transforming the Dissemination Environment. The goal is to eliminate centralized production of hard-copy maps and other tools for analysts and warfighters by creating a Web portal through which they can request those products, which will then be produced as needed, the notice states.

The contractor must develop an implementation plan for a demand-based geospatial intelligence pilot project, handle the hardware and software requirements, and monitor results, according to the notice.

The agency will conduct the test at Fort Bragg, N.C., and at an NGA office in Arnold, Mo., according to the announcement.
