Centuria provides top quality program management services that extend to all phases of project planning, implementation, and close-out. We have helped the Forest Service identify and work toward integrating future technologies into their nationwide asset management system and we are working with the National Weather Service’s (NWS) weather radar system to accurately forecast weather and track severe storms.
Centuria has experience implementing and evaluating projects in diverse fields such as technical engineering, IT infrastructure maintenance and upgrade, software development, and construction.
Centuria is dedicated to efficient task management once implementation begins. With our prime contractor experience managing large teams we plan, schedule, and track labor tasks and manage staff resources efficiently. While work is underway, Centuria works with customers to deliver milestone updates and frequent progress reports that reinforce our commitment to a transparent and responsible relationship. For software development and other IT projects, we streamline applications so that reporting is built in to the system.
The NEXRAD system is the nation’s premier radar-based, severe weather assessment, prediction, and warning network consisting of 159 radar installations. Centuria program managers lead a team that supports the entire NEXRAD SDLC—from strategic architecture and requirements collection to design, development, testing, documentation, and deployment.
For the Department of Energy’s Western Area Power Administration (WAPA), Centuria provides IT and program support for the marketing and delivery of reliable, cost-based hydroelectric power and related services within a 15-state region of the central and western U.S. WAPA is one of four power marketing administrations within the U.S. Department of Energy whose role is to market and transmit electricity from multi-use water projects. The transmission system carries electricity from 57 power plants operated by the Bureau of Reclamation, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the International Boundary and Water Commission. Together, these plants have an installed capacity of 10,395 megawatts.
Centuria helped the Forest Service envision and then transition their dispersed asset management software application into a centralized web-enabled environment, saving development and deployment dollars. This application became a key component of the Natural Resource Manager (NRM), an integrated suite of over 40 applications which enables Forest Service employees to track asset depreciation; propose, approve, and obligate grant funds; and issue permit-related bills. These applications have also been integrated with separate USDA asset and grants management systems and external government financial systems. Centuria develops yearly program-of-work agreements and implements all development, maintenance, and user support activities within an average of 3 to 5 major releases (and numerous supplemental releases) per year.
