eNGAge: The Geospatial Exchange


“We will learn to succeed wherever and whenever the moment demands.”
– NGA Strategy 2015

 

What is eNGAge?

Our rapidly evolving mission requires better and more talent exchanges with industry and academia. eNGAge enables these exchanges, sending our people out and bringing others in to support current, future or projected mission requirements across the agency.

Who benefits?

eNGAge will clearly benefit both NGA and our traditional and nontraditional partners: we will discover new ways of thinking and new business practices to further a culture of innovation. We can all gain from fresh insights into the opportunities and challenges associated with operating one of the five largest intelligence agencies in the country.  Employees will form lasting relationships with subject matter experts, DOD users, academia and commercial companies.

What can we do together?

Working together, eNGAge will act as a force multiplier to enhance our collective contribution to our national security, help us stay ahead of technology trends and support awareness of each other’s industry and capabilities.  eNGAge will help us learn and adapt as the realities of the world dictate.

“Use the power of the enterprise… evaluate today’s investments against tomorrow’s needs”
– NGA Strategy 2015

 

How does it work?

eNGAge is NGA’s program for bringing people in and sending them on geospatial exchanges that will support People Solutions. We will match talent with opportunities, find the best way to achieve the desired exchange, and provide support throughout the process.

Facilitation of geospatial exchanges requires a thorough understanding of the associated ethics guidance, the management of costs and the efficient processing of security clearances. eNGAge assembles the organizational resources to meet these challenges, so that when you say, “Wouldn’t it be great if we could get together and…,” the answer (depending, of course, on mission requirements) could be, “Absolutely.” 

  • NGA components identify specific mission needs and seek industry or academia partners.
  • There will also be a broad solution call: “tell us what you do and why NGA would benefit from exposure to this technology/methodology/approach.” 
  • We are looking to send and receive people at the mid-level (PB4/5 equivalents) and senior executive-equivalent levels.
  • Exchanges are not limited to the local commuting area; we will fund geographic relocations for Team NGA members.
  • NGA will pay the salaries of Team NGA members going OUT; when we bring people INTO Team NGA, we may be able to help with the cost.

 

“What got us here, won’t get us there”
