1Spatial wins two major US contracts
Cambridge geospatial specialist 1Spatial has won two lucrative deals in the US over land and sea together worth an initial $466k with potential to add a further $265k.
The US Federal Highways Administration (FHWA) has awarded 1Spatial a contract to provide its automated geospatial data validation software together with spatial consultancy services. The contract is for an initial one-year period with an option for FHWA to extend the contract for a further four years.
The US FHWA collects highway information from the individual US State Departments of Transport (DOTs) and feeds this data into the National Data Inventory which is used to determine the extent, usage, condition and performance of the nation’s highways. The information is used for highway needs assessments, transportation performance measures, apportionment of highway funds and for numerous research applications.
The solution from 1Spatial will enable FHWAs to automate the existing, mostly manual, processes to ensure regulatory requirements and compliance are met whilst benefiting the FHWA with improved efficiencies and cost savings.
The initial one-year period, covering the initial license and installation, has a contract value of $339k.
If the option to extend is exercised, the total contract value is up to $540k (including support and maintenance) with the remaining support and maintenance being spread equally over the following four option years.
1Spatial has also won a contract with National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), a bureau of the US Department of Commerce, to provide Commercial off the shelf (COTS) Enterprise software which integrates with Esri’s ArcGIS, together with 1Spatial training, consultancy services and ongoing support and maintenance.
The initial contract value is $127k for software and services, plus ongoing $16k per year support and maintenance for four option years. 1Spatial’s solution will allow to NOAA to collate various charts and historic data from across NOAA to achieve a true electronic nautical contiguous single map, allowing one version of the truth.
Claire Milverton, acting CEO of 1Spatial said: “With the US market being a key growth target market for us we are delighted to add US Federal Highways and NOAA to our US customer base and very much look forward to working with both organisations on these exciting and beneficial projects.
“These new wins along with the State of Nebraska and Arizona, earlier in the year, demonstrates that our US business is gaining momentum as 1Spatial builds its customer portfolio and brand and we deliver against our strategy.”
