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.
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.

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.
