National Technical Information Service (NTIS) Joint Venture Partnership
The National Technical Information Service's (NTIS) efforts to accelerate results across the federal government by leveraging data as a strategic asset to achieve mission outcomes. The NTIS is described as a trusted Fed-to-Fed advisor that applies its unique joint venture partnership (JVP) authority (15 U.S. Code 3704b) to help federal agencies solve their complex data challenges.
YSI was selected to join as a NTIS Joint Venture Partner in November of 2022, recognizing their data innovation capabilities in transforming and optimizing supply chains with Data Science, Data Governance and Standardization, and capabilities for Data Discovery, Data Set Search, and Interoperability. This partnership is said to put YSI on a shortlist of companies excelling in these areas, and allows them to work alongside the NTIS on opportunities to help other federal agencies on data innovation-driven projects, including the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Department of Energy (DOE), Department of Labor (DOL), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and numerous others.
