Edgewater secures DOE OSTI contract
On June 23, Frederick, MD-based Edgewater Federal Solutions, Inc. announced that it has been named the prime contractor winner of an estimated 5-year, $50,000,000 Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) Mission Support Services contract. Edgewater will partner with subcontractor KeyLogic Associates, LLC (KeyLogic) to complete the required services.
Through the DOE-awarded contract, Edgewater is to provide strategic and operational support, software systems development and maintenance, technology infrastructure and cybersecurity, information science and services, and administrative support to meet OSTI’s mission-driven goals.
OSTI’s core responsibility is to collect, preserve, and disseminate scientific and technical information (STI) resulting from DOE-funded research and development (R&D) activities at DOE national laboratories and facilities, universities, and other institutions nationwide. Through a suite of web-based, searchable tools and search engines, OSTI provides R&D information to DOE, the research community, and the public.
Utilizing DevSecOps, security engineering, Agile application development, and IT infrastructure best practices, Edgewater will perform system and network support, analysis, and maintenance to ensure all OSTI support systems and documents can continue to be accessed and distributed 24x7x365 across numerous large centralized and distributed web application infrastructures.
Annually, OSTI collects and provides public access to over 50,000 publications, datasets, software projects, and patents resulting from DOE research at national labs and other funded institutions.
“We are thrilled to be awarded this contract and be part of OSTI’s critical mission of managing DOE’s R&D results,” stated Dave Yockman, president of Edgewater. “We are excited for the opportunity to work with such a great organization. Through our great people, we will work tirelessly every day to raise the bar for this very important mission.”
“We are incredibly honored to continue our support to OSTI and its significant mission to ensure long-term preservation of and access to the results of DOE research and development investments,” John Ramsey, KeyLogic vice president of energy programs, said in the release. “I am extremely proud of our team currently supporting OSTI. Our team’s commitment to the mission and our extensive experience will ensure OSTI receives the critical support needed to achieve its important goals.”
