The University awarded a contract for consulting in transformative technologies to Strategy & Innovation Consulting, Stamford, CT, for an estimated $97,000.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
availability of consultants with expertise in university/non-profit consulting with a background in transformative technologies and focus on strategic planning for technology organizations like NCSA is extremely limited. Strategy and Innovation has been involved since the inception of the program and would lend consistency and continuity to the project and allow NCSA to meet the necessary guidelines to integrate the activities of the Blue Waters and IACAT projects and leverage additional funding opportunities and development of petascale computing applications.
