The US federal government’s GSA and OMB are seeking input from the geospatial industry to help them establish the Geospatial Line of Business across all government agencies. They are looking for responses by May 4th, but it is not a paying solicitation, merely a request for voluntary input. They are looking for response to questions like: “In which data themes of national importance is there opportunity for increased effectiveness, efficiency and cost savings; what are the critical change management issues and best practices for successful transition to and full implementation of common solutions; what cultural impediments and training issues need to be addressed; and, what are the top three factors for coordinating the use of geographic information.”
There will also be an industry day on April 18th in Washington, DC. and signups close on April 14th.
