National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) – Web Development and Support Services

As part of the Open Government initiative to expand public access to federally funded research, NOAA was required to make their data freely available to the public within one year of publication. In support of this, LAC Federal developed an online Institutional Repository (IR) of scientific literature produced and/or funded by NOAA. With over 20,000 publications currently available, this website is freely accessible, Google-indexed, and successful in expanding the reach and impact of NOAA research around the world. Additional support provided by LAC Federal staff includes supplementary services to NOAA authors and researchers, the development of robust FAQ pages, and guidance on Section 508 compliance.
