PMO Overview

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Acquisition and Grants Office (AGO) includes the Strategic Sourcing Acquisition Division (SSAD), the ProTech Branch, and the ProTech Program Management Office (ProTech PMO). ProTech is a suite of contracting vehicles that consists of Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) multiple award contracts, multiple award and single award Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs), and other contract types providing professional and technical services to NOAA. The ProTech PMO consists of government contracting officers and account managers who are assigned to a specific domain. They oversee the domain contracts and provide program, acquisition, and administrative management support and guidance.

PMO Functions

The PMO aims to improve the business operations and cost savings for NOAA. AGO (and DOC bureau) contracting officers will be responsible for awarding and managing ProTech task orders. Upon request of the government requiring activity or the task order contracting officer (TO CO), the ProTech PMO is available to offer guidance and assistance in the following areas:

  • Market research and acquisition planning;
  • Assist the requiring activity with the development of the requirement document (statement of work (SOW)/performance work statement (PWS)/statement of objectives (SOO));
  • Independent government cost estimate (IGCE);
  • Source selection planning and evaluation factors;
  • Recommendations for the TO contract type (fixed-price, cost-reimbursement, time & material, labor hour, or hybrid);
  • Overall support of the requiring activity’s preparation of the work products necessary to complete the purchase requisition (PR) package; and
  • Train requiring activities and NOAA Acquisition and Grants Office (AGO) division, Department of Commerce (DOC), and DOC bureau contracting officers on the ProTech Program processes.

The PMO Can guide you through each step of the process.
