NSA plan calls for changes in IT development

The National Security Agency has begun streamlining its acquisition processes, and that includes doing away with its Signals Intelligence Programs Office.

All programs will be managed by teams whose members have expertise in acquisition, financial management and systems engineering areas, Air Force Lt. Gen. Michael V. Hayden, NSA's director, said in an internal memorandum sent to all agency personnel last month.

To that end, NSA is eliminating the Signals Intelligence Programs Office and parceling out its many projects to the 'organizations best suited to foster development,' Hayden said in the memo obtained by GCN.

'These changes in our approach have struck a delicate balance between discipline and ability,' he said.
