New York-based Boundless is donating $100,000 to LaunchCode to expand coding training for women in St. Louis.
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency met proper federal guidelines in choosing north St. Louis as the site for a new, $945 million western headquarters, a report by the Government Accountability Office says.
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s new west campus is the largest federal investment project in the history of St. Louis. The project is jointly managed by the NGA, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Air Force. The St. Louis location will relocate four miles north to an underdeveloped intersection of Jefferson and Cass Avenues. As the program director for the Next NGA West (N2W), Susan Pollmann will lead the new support facility to be a secure and energizing work environment.
The message seemed counterintuitive for an event focused on cybersecurity, but one of the country’s most important intelligence agencies wants to make it easier to get inside its building and access its networks.
Grading and final site work on the future western headquarters of the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency in north St. Louis should begin next month and wrap up by February.
NGA Director Robert Cardillo was among the keynote speakers at the recent Department of Defense Intelligence Information Systems Worldwide Conference held in St. Louis on August 14, 2017. In his remarks Cardillo noted:
"With technology and the needs of our workforce changing, it's evident that NGA needs a new facility in St. Louis to meet the challenges of the modern world. I believe that Next NGA West will be attractive to millennials and the next generation of the NGA workforce."
NGA Director Robert Cardillo recently hosted St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson to NGA's Second Street Campus in early July. Among the topics discussed during this engagement was a status update on the Next NGA West project.
