Global Science & Technology, Inc. (GST) is proud to announce it is one of three small companies awarded the Scientific and Technical Support Services Next Generation Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (Sci-Tech NG IDIQ) contract for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The Sci-Tech NG IDIQ is NOAA's largest scientific and technical support services contract designed to be used throughout the agency. The GST team will harness its comprehensive management and technical solutions expertise to support the multiple science challenges associated with the Sci-Tech NG IDIQ. The three contracts combined have a maximum value of $550 million over five years.
"Clearly, the GST team has the ability to offer NOAA strong science–focused expertise," said GST President Chieh–san Cheng. "We are grateful NOAA is giving our team this remarkable opportunity, and we look forward to providing world–class science and technology services across a broad range of disciplines."
The GST team will be given an opportunity, through the issuance of task orders, to support NOAA's five line offices: Satellite and Information Service, National Marine Fisheries Service, National Ocean Service, National Weather Service, and the Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research.
The work done under the contract will benefit NOAA in several ways. For example, it will help NOAA get the most out of the data from its operational satellites, leading to improved quality of short- and long-term weather and climate predictions and warnings.
The science-focused team lead by GST includes:
