National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON)
The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently announced its intention to carry out a competition to manage the Operations and Maintenance of the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) via a Dear Colleague Letter (NSF 19-080) and invited comments and questions from eligible organizations interested in this competition (submit via firstname.lastname@example.org).
NSF will be hosting a webinar regarding the planned competition, which will discuss the timeline for executing the competition for the management of NEON Operations and Maintenance. Individuals, teams and organizations interested in submitting proposals should try to participate. Following a short presentation, there will be a question and answer period. Please note registration is required to attend the webinar.
For further details about the competition, please consult the DCL (NSF 19-080).

The National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) is an NSF-funded large facility project operated by Battelle Memorial Institute. NEON comprises terrestrial, aquatic, atmospheric, and remote sensing measurement infrastructure and cyberinfrastructure that deliver standardized, calibrated data to the scientific community through a single, openly accessible data portal. NEON infrastructure is geographically-distributed across the United States, including Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico, and will generate data for ecological research over a 30 year period.
NEON is designed to enable the research community to ask and address their own questions on a regional to continental scale around the environmental challenges identified as relevant to understanding the effects of climate change, land-use change and invasive species patterns on the biosphere.
The NSF NEON program, which is part of the Centers and Cooperative Agreements Cluster in the Division of Biological Infrastructure, manages the NEON award in collaboration with the NSF Large Facilities Office and the NSF Division of Acquisition and Cooperative Support.
