Each year the NOAA Small Business Office highlights the accomplishment of a small business contractor that has furthered NOAA’s mission through collaboration and cooperation with us. This year the Small Business Office recognized INNOVIM, LLC. NOAA writes in part:
“NOAA’s “Vision and Strategy: Supporting NOAA’s Mission with Social Science,” recognizes that we must “Integrate Social, Behavioral, and Economic science end-to-end in NOAA’s mission and priorities.” INNOVIM has been supporting the NWS Hazard Simplification Project since 2015. This project applies social and behavioral sciences to better understand user hazard messaging needs, simplifying weather communications, and testing prototypes as candidates to replace the Watch, Warning, and Advisory (WWA) system. INNOVIM has been directly supporting the National Weather Service with consolidation and reformatting of WWA products based on multiple public surveys and testing of candidate approaches. This work is highly collaborative encompassing a broad spectrum of stakeholders.”
