Facilities Information Management System

KeyLogic used aggregated data to generate meaningful reports identifying opportunities for reuse and sharing across the enterprise—giving NOAA more bang for its buck.

Enhancing NOAA’s Facility Management

The Client: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Office of Finance and Administration oversees NOAA’s facilities and assets across the country.

The Challenge: NOAA had been collecting disparate data from facilities nationwide. To avoid cumbersome efforts aggregating data, NOAA wanted to move to a centralized data management system.

The Solution: KeyLogic, as a subcontractor, examined NOAA’s IT system related to asset management, asking these questions:

  • What does NOAA need the system to do?
  • How does the system currently function?
  • How do we transition the system to what it needs to be?

In other words, KeyLogic experts employed Standards-Based Architecture (SBA) to:

  • Bring together various sources of information
  • Develop functional requirements
  • Baseline the current information technology environment, or the as-is state
  • Define the target architecture, or the to-be state
  • Develop a Concept of Operations to detail how the to-be state will function
  • Develop a migration plan for how to efficiently get from the as-is state to the to-be state
  • Develop an Implementation Plan, including a Systems Engineering Management Plan

The Result: KeyLogic’s efforts provided the following benefits for NOAA:

  • Streamlined Data Collection. KeyLogic designed a technology system to capture disparate information in a single, centralized database to facilitate more accurate accounting and more efficient and effective management.
  • Meaningful Analysis. KeyLogic used aggregated data to generate meaningful reports identifying opportunities for reuse and sharing across the enterprise—giving NOAA more bang for its buck.
  • Improved Stakeholder Communications. KeyLogic set up the Facilities Information Management System (FIMS) to provide customer contacts and end users with a wealth of online information. The website included the project’s overview and vision, a schedule of milestones and deliverables, a list of all project deliverables for download, a discussion area for comments and questions, and a directory of project personnel and key NOAA personnel.
