Parsons Awarded NOAA Contract to Implement Infrastructure and Facilities Management Solution

PASADENA, CA--(Marketwire - September 13, 2010) -  The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) awarded Parsons a multiyear contract for the planning and implementation of a total infrastructure and facilities management solution (TIFM) at three regional centers: Silver Spring, MD; Seattle, WA; and Honolulu, HI. Parsons was chosen to implement the TIFM using the Archibus software system, a real estate and space management application used to identify underutilized assets, optimize resources, and strengthen operational performance. In addition, Parsons will capture lease data for NOAA properties throughout the nation.

Parsons will analyze NOAA's existing facilities' management system, conduct a requirements analysis and assessment, and develop and implement the TIFM solution, including software installation, training, data development, and technical support services. When implemented, the TIFM will give NOAA reliable, real-time access to information regarding space inventory and performance, real property management, and space chargeback.

"Parsons is pleased to be supporting NOAA on this important project," said Todd Wager, Parsons Group President. "We have been using Archibus for successful asset management projects at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center campus, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, and at Tinker Air Force Base, the largest Air Force installation in the United States. We will help NOAA achieve similar organizational improvements in managing their multiple assets."
