This is a REQUEST FOR COMMENT ON A DRAFT PERFORMANCE WORK STATEMENT. A cost comparison study is being conducted of the National Logistic Support Center located in Kansas City, Missouri. It is a component of the U. S. Department of Commerce (DOC), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), NOAA Finance and Administration (NFA), Central Administrative Support Center (CASC). The NLSC is an entirely reimbursable cost center.

It is funded through Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) or Intra-Agency Agreements with its Customer organizations. Currently, NLSC has six Customers; four are NOAA entities: National Weather Service (NWS), NOAA Finance and Administration (NFA), the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), and the National Ocean Service (NOS). The other two are the Animal, Plant, and Health Inspection Service (APHIS) of the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Earth (GLOBE) Program under the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The release of this draft PWS is the first step to meet the requirements.
