Nick Nayak, former chief procurement officer at the Department of Homeland Security and president of Green Light Acquisition, talks about the NGA’s efforts to optimize procurement and streamline programs.


The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency is the Department of Defense’s primary GEOINT provider, creating maps and analyzing imagery to support troops on the ground. Recently, the agency announced that it is looking to speed up their acquisition process by going small. NGA’s deputy director says that the reform’s main changes will be shorter development cycles and driving efficiencies. “At the end of the day, the agency’s got a mission, then they have programs underneath the mission to make the mission actually work,” said Nick Nayak, former chief procurement officer at the Department of Homeland Security and president of Green Light Acquisition. What he is saying is that we have to basically then take those programs, have projects under the programs and then, yes, there are contracts that support those projects and programs but you have sort of perfect alignment. You take it in more manageable chunks as opposed to one big program, one big contractor, and everybody goes to sleep on it.”
