- The 50 United States and the District of Columbia (3,806,000 sq. miles)
- U.S. territories & commonwealths: Puerto Rico, Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and the Northern Mariana Islands.
The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to gain information on current industry offerings and capabilities that would meet NGA’s mission requirements.
NGA is seeking to acquire foundational business records at locations where the primary use of the structure(s) and land is associated with one of the 17 priority business sectors as defined in the SOW. All data shall be spatially accurate and correctly coded to the appropriate priority business sector. Spatial inaccuracies and/or mis-coded data will be evaluated and identified as discrepancies.
