GAMA-1’s Enterprise Data Center Team delivers exceptional service to NOAA’s IT Enterprise

Congrats to NOAA's Enterprise Data Center GAMA-1 Team recognized for exceptional service

The National Weather Service (NWS) Director of Facilities, Timothy Greten, sent the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA) Enterprise Data Center (EDC) Program Manager Brian Cox a letter of recognition for their exceptional support. The NOAA EDC program delivers data center management services to line and staff offices within the NOAA IT enterprise.

The team supports the mission and non-mission essential functions, including management of facilities, preventative and predictive maintenance of mission-critical data centers, and the IT infrastructure that monitors and manages these functions.

The EDC Program Manager, Brian Cox, expresses his thoughts in an email to the team,

EDC Team,
I hope this email finds you all in high spirits. I am writing to extend my deepest gratitude and appreciation for each one of you and the exceptional support you have provided. It is with immense pride and joy that I share with you the recent letter of appreciation we received from Tim at the Office of Facilities.
Tim’s letter acknowledges the outstanding contributions and dedicated efforts of our team in managing the preventative maintenance of the infrastructure supporting their spaces and systems. This recognition is a testament to the unwavering commitment and expertise that each of you brings to the table.
I want to emphasize that exceeding Tim’s expectations and receiving such heartfelt recognition would not have been possible without your collective efforts. Your dedication, professionalism, and talent have been the driving force behind our success in making a positive impact on the efficiency and effectiveness of not only NWS operations but also the day-to-day mission-critical operations supporting all of NOAA.
It is an absolute honor to work alongside such a remarkable group of individuals. Your collaboration and camaraderie create an inspiring work environment that fosters growth and success. Together, we are a force to be reckoned with, and I am grateful for each day I get to be a part of this team.
As we move forward, I have no doubt that our combined skills and determination will continue to lead us to even greater achievements. Let’s keep up the fantastic work and maintain this level of excellence.
Once again, thank you for being the backbone of our accomplishments and for making our team shine. 
With the sincerest appreciation,
Brian Cox

GAMA-1’s Program Manager, Shameka Johnson, noted, “It became clear to me that GAMA-1 and CFS working as partners made sense. The wealth of knowledge that GAMA-1 personnel brings from an IT perspective and CFS personnel’s knowledge from a facility management perspective is just the perfect merger! The team consistently goes above and beyond to meet customer expectations, including driving to a local site to address an issue within hours’ notice. I don’t think we could have asked for a better team! Congratulations!”
