With FOSE 2010 happening this week in Washington, DC, there is no shortage of government technology news happening. Of course, we like to sift through all the news a find the interesting tidbits that relate to the GEOINT community. We came across a Fed News Radio interview with Jim Whitehead, Division Chief of External Operations at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA). Mr. Whitehead discusses the results of his study of IT spending at agencies. The study compares IT spending between agencies and private-sector companies. He also found that civilian federal agencies, like top corporations, spend significant portions of their technology funds on the infrastructure that supports the rest of their operations. Check out the Fed News Radio interview with Mr. Whitehead here.
