Dr. Keith Littlefield serves as chief information officer at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, the Springfield, Va.-based mapping agency led by Letitia Long.

Before joining NGA, Littlefield served as associate deputy director of national intelligence for acquisition, technology and facilities in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence from September 2009 to July 2011, where he also served as ODNI’s senior acquisition executive and leadership and oversight to more than 50 system acquisitions in the intelligence community.

Those acquisitions were worth more than $150 billion, according to NGA.

In that capacity, Littlefield also provided guidance on space planning and facility upgrades for more than IC facilities worldwide and worked with the Pentagon’s acquisition office on acquisition workforce competency across the IC.
