The program is called the Analysis Innovation Experience and it gives analysts the resources they need to develop innovative ways to combat emerging threats around the world. It’s essentially a startup competition, and analysts are using it to build viable new products that the NGA can use.
Analysts form teams to develop ideas which are then judged against each other. 255 team members from 26 locations around the country participated in the program which resulted in 42 new projects. Two separate rounds of judging have eliminated all but five of the proposals, which are now undergoing extended idea development.
From how to win government jobs and contracts, to veterans issues to the latest national security challenges, host Derrick T. Dortch gives you the access needed to succeed. Subscribe to Fed Access’ audio interviews on Apple Podcasts or Podcast One.
