BMT to Lead Cutting-Edge Marine Science for NOAA on $3B ProTech Oceans Domain IDIQ

BMT, a global leader in science and engineering consultancy, has been named a prime awardee on ProTech Oceans Domain, a $3B multiple-award indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract serving the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Ocean Service (NOS). The new award is a significant win for BMT as it demonstrates its socio-economic partnership and international engagement role with a global leader in integrated management of the oceans.

The five-year, multiple-award agreement supports NOAA in meeting their mission requirement to address the continuous and evolving economic, environmental, and social threats on our oceans, marine platforms and coastal communities. BMT will provide support to NOAA in program sustainability, ecological resilience, navigation services and coastal observations. NOS provides world-class scientific services support of resilient and sustainable coastal communities as well as greater economic growth of ecosystems and biodiversity. The new IDIQ contract reflects BMT’s global collaboration and deep oceans’ expertise in supporting the NOS’ priorities of safe, efficient transportation and commerce; emergency preparedness, disaster risk reduction and mitigation; capacity building through partnerships and environmental stewardship in tourism and recreation.

Rick Cox, Vice President of Business Development at BMT North America,

“We are very proud to support the NOS in its endeavors to serve the nation as a global leader in integrated management of the ocean through our proven, smart ocean systems and observations, including our optical remote oceans’ sensing technologies for assessing ocean climate risks and disaster risk reduction.
“We’re also delighted to head-up a strong team including some of the nation’s leading scientists and technical experts in marine and aquatic research, and that further demonstrates BMT’s cross-functional team management expertise.”

The Alexandria-based business has provided mission-critical services including coastal and marine management, navigation data, environmental services and ocean modeling support to U.S. Federal agencies, including NOAA, U.S. Department of Agriculture, Department of Homeland Security, and Department of Defense. BMT has also served foreign governments and agencies, the scientific community and INGOs/NGOs with marine and coastal management services.
