Like all large, diverse, multinational organizations, the National-Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA) requires operational and mission knowledge to succeed as an IT services contractor. In the Intelligence Community this knowledge is often referred to as Deep Dive Domain Knowledge.
Deep Dive Domain Knowledge Defined
Developing a strong working knowledge of NGA takes time and effort. It involves an understanding of the management structure and the key mission critical and other components responsible for running the business. As a combat support agency NGA ultimate goal is the mission.
Knowledge of key individuals is a start but success is based upon clear communication performance, integrity, setting customer exceptions and meeting mission requirements.
Total and absolute knowledge is never completely achieved but is more a continuing effort to identify the necessary individuals, offering workable mission solutions and establishing a high level of trust.
Care must be taken however to avoid classified information when developing a deep dive domain profile without the proper clearances and a clearly defined need to know.
Why is it Useful?
If you are going to be a successful contractor with NGA, you need to offer solutions for mission problems faced by customers and user groups that are constantly changing. To do otherwise is to give up emerging opportunities to the competition and is a recipe for failure.
With a deep dive domain presence, a company can identify upcoming needs and mission requirements and integrate this information into capture plans for upcoming contract opportunities.
What Does Deep Dive Domain Knowledge Mean to an IT Services Company?
By developing deep dive domain knowledge and combining it with a reputation for quality service, an IT services company can develop a long-term business relationship with the NGA. It is an ideal way to grow a profitable company and create rewarding careers for skilled IT individuals with the required security clearances.
