Kebra Beckford
Kebra Beckford
Contracting Officer
During the past 24 years since employment with the Federal Government, I’ve worked with the Department of Navy for six years three of which I was an Acquisition Intern/Contract Specialist. Later moved on to the Defense Intelligence Agency where I spent four years working as a Senior Contract Specialist/Officer. I moved on to NGA where I’ve been for the past 14 years (13 years as a Contract Specialist/Officer and 1 year as Contracting Officer Representative (COR) in CIOT- Enterprise Services Program Office (TCC). My formal education includes a Masters of Science in Management, December 2002 from Florida Institute of Technology, a B.S., February 1998 from Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU), Teaneck, NJ. I also Studied Overseas for a semester at Wroxton College, England Fairleigh Dickinson University –Fall 1996, and lastly a A.A., Liberal Arts with Honors, May 1995 from Edward Williams College Fairleigh Dickinson University, Hackensack, NJ. I currently work in the Office of Contract Services (OCS) and just moved into a new Branch Chief position in OCSI working with IT Infrastructure and Data Storage contracts. I have acquired vast amounts of knowledge regarding Acquisition and Contracting from small to large. Since Contracting is always changing I’m always looking to learn new things. I consider myself to be a real down to earth person, and I love people. I have a great sense of humor and I love to laugh. I don’t take myself to serious meaning that I see and accept myself at my most elemental—as a changing human playing out an unfinished story. When you loosen up on yourself, you open up space for play, for exploration, and for change. I’ve learned to not make everything personal and let things roll of (“like water of a ducks back”). I believe that as long as you get your work done and don’t lose sight of the mission, there is always room to have a good time.

Richard Wiley
Richard Wiley
Police Officer
I graduated in 2013 from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville with my dual major bachelors in Psychology and Sociology. After Graduating I started working at a company called Nesher. This company produced and over saw the transportation of controlled medical substances. After 3 years with Nesher and being the site lead for security I moved to Express Scripts. While Express Scripts did not produce controlled substances, we oversaw far more shipments and would have to maintain vault security for far more packaging lines for spills or diversion of the controlled substances in our custody. I was the shift lead for weekends and first shift, as well as the training officer for the security department and oversaw Missouri and federal drug and health training and accreditation for our department, facility, and officers. I then accepted a position with the NGA police force and have continued my experience physical security and asset protection, now totaling 8 years. What I do for NGA is very similar to most asset and facility protection and diversion missions, while also being able to work as a member of the NGA Police Honor Guard and as the Special Emphasis Program, Disability Advisory Council Lead. As the Council lead I receive end user feed back on accessibility issues people have with the facilities and workspaces and I work with facilities, reasonable accommodations, and the office of diversity and equality, as well as any relevant stake holders to come to meaningful resolutions to support the federal antidiscrimination and accessibility legislative framework of NGA.

Imagery Analyst

My name is Jason Kiefer. I have worked at NGA since October 2010. I have a BA in History and a MA in International Relations. I worked in the private sector for 10 years prior to onboarding with NGA. My jobs in the private sector had nothing to do with the work role I conduct on a daily basis at NGA. I am an Imagery Analyst by trade with the agency. While with the agency, I have deployed three times in support of our customers in the field. I enjoy the work at NGA and wish to pursue further opportunities in the agency.
