MCLEAN, Va. – From navigating a U.S. aircraft to making national policy decisions, to responding to natural disasters: today’s U.S. armed forces rely on Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) to meet mission requirements. As the nation's primary source of GEOINT for the Department of Defense and the U.S. Intelligence Community, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) depends on the National Geospatial-Intelligence College (NGC) to produce top-tier talent to deliver intelligence with a decisive advantage. Today, Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) announced that it has been awarded a five-year, $86 million contract by NGA-NGC to lead the Learning Management and Advancement Program (LMAP) that will provide high-quality learning solutions to equip a diverse workforce with the knowledge and skills necessary to meet current and future GEOINT mission requirements.
As part of this single award, firm fixed price contract, Booz Allen will help NGC achieve operational efficiencies through the delivery of innovative curriculum and learning content aimed at developing and strengthening a global geospatial workforce. Specifically, as part of this win, Booz Allen will provide integrated learning solutions and enabling functions through learning portfolio and performance management, registrar services and learning outreach, and faculty development.
“Learning services are evolving very quickly, moving away from traditional platform instruction to more informal and on-the-job solutions. At the same time, clients’ missions are evolving rapidly, and the time available to develop formal learning solutions has diminished,” said Bill Wansley, Senior Vice President at Booz Allen. “New and disruptive solutions are now becoming more important to help individuals achieve higher work performance in shorter periods of time.”
Booz Allen and its teaming partners bring to this contract a large cadre of instructional systems designers, learning strategists, instructional technologists and performance measurement staff that enable full-scope learning services, ranging from initial learning needs, analysis, and requirement definition, to the design, development, implementation and assessment of delivered solutions.
