OSAAP PAT provides observing requirements data, observing system portfolio/architecture analysis, and manages the data sets for analytical support to NESDIS and NOAA senior leadership, and the NOAA Observing Systems Council (NOSC). In this capacity, OSAAP PAT is the analytical working group for the Observing Systems Committee (OSC), a NOSC Sub-Committee. OSAAP PAT manages the Earth Observing Systems (EOS), Earth Observing Requirements (EOR), and product value tree information (VTI) data sets for NESDIS and NOAA. OSAAP PAT also provides technical support and analysis, program advocacy, and capital asset planning recommendations to NOAA leadership. OSAAP PAT maintains, manages, and stores the data sets for all of NOAA---s observing systems, observing requirements, and observing system portfolio analyses, as well as NESDIS--- product and requirements data sets. OSAAP PAT utilizes these data sets to carry out its analyses. OSAAP PAT---s analytical products provide information to help NOAA and NESDIS Senior Leadership make informed decisions related to mission planning, observing system architecture, budgeting, and mission sustainment. OSAAP PAT must also maintain sound program management, consistent and accurate analysis tools, and an efficient action tracking system. OSAAP PAT requires contract support to ensure these data sets are coordinated, functional, reliable and enhanced as needed; and the overall flow of information is uninterrupted. The contractor shall assist OSAAP PAT in the optimum planning for NOAA---s observing needs as well as NESDIS--- planning needs more specifically. The contractor shall contribute to solutions to support distributed, partnered and centralized observing needs and strive for more effective and cost-efficient observing and data management operations.

OSAAP PAT performs observing and information system assessments and analyses for the NOSC, and submits recommendations as to thebest efficiency of our system portfolio. OSAAP PAT also provides support to the entire NOAA community and other Federal agencies by providing data and/or data analyses using in-house databases and associated customized analysis tools. Additionally, OSAAP PAT provides analysis and recommendations to support NESDIS--- user engagement, architecture and product and service strategies through its NOAA value chain and requirements evaluations. OSAAP PAT integrates NESDIS--- product and requirements datasets into the larger NOAA data sets for facilitating NESDIS decision making and planning through assessments and analyses. OSAAP PAT provides the stewardship for the observation systems and requirements datasets for NOAA---s observing capabilities and provides analysis on the satisfaction of the products produced. The system that houses the data is called the Earth Observation Requirements Evaluation System (EORES). EORES I s a relational database system architecture jointly developed by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and NOAA. The objective of the work is to collect, manage, and enhance NOAA---s observing requirements, observing system inventory, system capabilities, systems life cycle cost information, and the key NOAA products and services that use these observing systems. OSAAP PAT also provides strategic planning analysis, observing systems portfolio assessment and product impact assessment for NESDIS and NOAA using OSAAP PAT databases, customized analysis tools, data analyses, and associated capabilities.
