Velos Team Shines at NOAA

SILVER SPRING, MD–Our team working on our current National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration (NOAA), National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) – Administrative, Technical and Non-Scientific support services contract have been doing an incredible and noteworthy job! In fact, two of our team members were recently awarded for their outstanding hard work and dedicated support to NESDIS: Donald Hall and Joseph Giraldi. Donny is the recipient of the “Team Member of the Quarter” award for his recent work in drafting the NESDIS Budget Business Rules. At NOAA, Donny is a Management Analyst, working primarily for the Facilities Management Branch. He assists with financial, procurement and project management activities. He enjoys improving NESDIS project management processes and mentoring staff in navigating the federal procurement process. A true problem-solver, Donny loves it when NOAA mentions a problem to him and asks him to examine ways to improve it. Donny has been with Velos since 2016.
