(U) As a direct report to the Deputy Director of NGA (DD), the Program Analysis & Evaluation (PA&E) office enables the Director of NGA (D) to shape agency capabilities by providing objective, independent evaluation and analytic advice on all aspects of enterprise programs and activities. The PA&E office requires Government-Defined contractor support to conduct this independent analysis, create objective cost estimates, determine agency-wide manpower requirements, shape planning and programming actions, and facilitates the tracking and closure of IG inspection recommendations. Over the next five years, the PA&E office understands there are times when surge support is necessary for major, community-wide studies and special analysis and research which would require reachback to subject matter experts to provide their expertise on an hourly basis. In addition, the PA&E office may require the ability to acquire graphics and strategic communications support; PA&E study findings and reports may be distributed to organizations external to NGA, and as such our office may require professional presentation, editing, and graphics as expected from our agency. The Flexible Resource Allocation section will address these surge needs.
(U) The PA&E office requires highly skilled Business Analysts/Operations Research, Business Analysts/Workforce, Business Analysts/Data Management, Planning Analysts, and Cost Analysts with specialized skills. The contractor support for the PA&E office will provide extensive experience and knowledge of these activities to augment and bolster the government and military personnel. The PA&E office requests optional positions since specific areas of expertise could change over time per D and DD direction. In addition, PA&E requires surge support to meet evolving short terms needs.
