FORT COLLINS --  Riverside Technology,  Inc., an industry leader in the design and implementation of integrated scientific, engineering, and IT solutions, announced it was awarded a contract task order by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for the Technology Planning and Integration for Observation (TPIO) program. Riverside_logoUSE

This work, awarded to Riverside under their Scientific, Technical Support Services (Sci-Tech) contract, will be led by Riverside in partnership with Integrity Applications Incorporated (IAI).

NOAA’s mission is to understand and predict changes in climate, weather, oceans, and coasts and then share that knowledge with others. The TPIO program plays a key part in executing that mission by providing observing requirements data, observing system portfolio/architecture analysis, and analytical support to NOAA senior leadership, in particular, the NOAA Observing Systems Council (NOSC).

TPIO is part of the Office of Projects, Planning, and Analysis (OPPA) Office in the NOAA Environmental Satellite Data and Information Service (NESDIS) line office in Silver Spring, Maryland.

Riverside said the work will further TPIO’s goal of helping NOAA provide the highest caliber environmental intelligence to citizens, planners, emergency managers, and other decision makers. Riverside and IAI have been successfully providing scientific, technical, and management support to OPPA and the TPIO program since 2007.

“We are honored to have the opportunity to build on our 25 years of support of NOAA through this project providing technical services to facilitate TPIO’s analysis and support functions,” said Larry Brazil, president and CEO of Riverside.

“And we are delighted to be teaming with IAI and ISS, key partners to Riverside. We look forward to providing management, IT, analysis and visualization, and technical expertise for this mission-critical project.”

Because of the critical nature of the TPIO work, Riverside said NOAA required a rapid personnel transition directly following contract award, and the company was able to execute their low-risk transition plan over the course of a weekend, achieving 100 percent incumbent staff retention.

The contract is expected to run through 2017.

Riverside Technology provides science and engineering solutions, information and analysis tools for its clients’ environmental decision-making needs worldwide. During the last 25 years, Riverside has performed more than 1,200 projects in more than 30 countries worldwide.
