Executive Mosaic, the publisher of ExecutiveGov and several other websites that cover the government contracting industry, regularly obtains insights and perspectives from thought leaders in both the public and private sectors on GovCon industry trends and trajectories.
ExecutiveGov has enhanced its focus on interviews with government decision makers to complement the series of executive spotlights at its sister site ExecutiveBiz, where EM staffers conduct in-depth conversations with leading executives at the country’s largest GovCon companies.
Recently, we caught up with Dr. Harvey Davis of the National Security Agency in a three-part series to discuss his role and responsibilities as director for installations and logistics and his 30-year career at the Fort Meade, Md.-based enterprise.
Davis told ExecutiveGov he was one of the first people to bring an M.B.A. background to NSA but also pointed out the government has the same need as the private sector, in that they must manage resources and build teams in a process-driven environment.
He also discussed his collaborations with businesses to achieve the agency’s mission, including military construction projects that he classified as currently in the design-build phase.
“EGov,” the affectionate nickname for ExecutiveGov used by readers and EM’s staff, also looks to widely-respected GovCon industry analysts for a bird’s eye view of the sector and its future.
Jim McAleese, founder and principal at McAleese & Associates, spoke to Executive Mosaic prior to the lead up to the Potomac Officers Club‘s special Post-Sequestration Summit and examined the 2013 sequester’s impact on the individual military service branches.
McAleese also turned his lens on the Pentagon’s budget request for fiscal year 2014, which he believes could see an increased number of program kills and deferrals, assuming the sequester continues.
The 2014 sequester as a “high probability” of not happening, McAleese said, but cautioned this is dependent on Congress reaching a fiscal compromise.
