NOAA wraps up awards on $3B 'ProTech' services vehicle

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has made the fourth and final set of awards as part of a broader professional and technical services contract vehicle to support the agency’s environmental intelligence gathering mission.

For this last round, NOAA chose 22 companies for the “Weather” domain of the so-called “ProTech” vehicle that is the agency’s mandated strategic sourcing vehicle to consolidate such services into a single procurement. ProTech has an overall ceiling of $3 billion across all domains for a two-year base period followed by three individual option years.

NOAA unveiled the set of Weather domain awardees in a notice posted Wednesday to Beta.Sam.Gov. Awards went to both large and small businesses, while the total number of bidders is unknown at this time.

The Weather domain covers services to help NOAA’s daily weather forecasting, severe storm warning and climate monitoring functions. A pre-award protest by Cyberdata Technologies over its exclusion from the competition was denied in November of last year.
