Examples of Contract Experience
NWS, as part of the National Systems of Geospatial Intelligence (NSG) Systems Integration (SI) team, coordinates directly with Government Entity Owners/Program Managers to develop transition requirements, Request For Changes (RFCs), Engineering Change Proposals (ECPs), and transition plans to establish the overall methodology for transitioning the entity/capability on schedule at minimal cost. NWS personnel are responsible for the coordination and oversight of technical exchange meetings, coordination within multiple segments and organizations, as well as liaising with Government and Contractor stakeholders and technical representatives to ensure minimal impact to the mission.
In support of the Intelligence Community (IC), NWS develops engineering assessments and concepts for technology insertion into the customer architecture; identifies and defines configuration management requirements; evaluates the insertion and implementation of technology options from a cost, schedule, performance, and risk management perspective; provides stable, timely, and appropriate engineering and integration expertise; develops innovative alternatives for systems integration and engineering challenges; and analyzes/evaluates maturing research and development technologies from internal and external sources for possible insertion into the customer architecture. On selected technologies, NWS assists with developing engineering assessments, concepts, and technology insertion plans. In support of the customer Readiness Process, NWS assists with the planning and development of material for configuration management reviews and communicates status in the form of in process reviews (IPRs), program management reviews (PMRs), and quarterly progress reviews (QPRs). NWS develops, presents, and reviews material for engineering review boards (ERBs), configuration management boards, Risk Management Forums, Senior Engineer Forums, and Senior Management Forums
