Letitia A. Long, NGA’s director, and Joann Cecere, director of Software Asset Management for NGA, were both selected as award winners for the annual list released March 10. The Federal 100 Awards recognize government and industry leaders who have played pivotal roles in the federal government IT community — individuals who have gone above and beyond their daily responsibilities and have made a difference in the way technology has transformed their agency or accelerated their agency's mission.

SPRINGFIELD, Va.— NGA Director Letitia A. Long and Joann Cecere, the agency’s software asset management director will be honored at FCW’s annual Federal 100 Gala Thursday, March 20.
Long and Cecere are two of NGA’s and the intelligence community’s strongest advocates in advancing geospatial intelligence with information technology.
Long is optimizing NGA’s core services for its customers, driving integration and delivering the promise of GEOINT, with four strategic initiatives: Open Information Technology, the Map of the World, the Globe user experience and Activity Based Intelligence.
“NGA’s vision of the future is a geo-centric world where analysts may “live within the data” immersed in a multi-sensory, fully integrated environment,” said Long in a speech last month to the Esri Federal GIS conference in Washington, D.C.
Cecere merged multiple software agreements into one contract in 2013 and aligned the agency’s software asset management operations with the intelligence community IT enterprise strategy.
