EarthCube: Enterprise Governance: EarthCube is a community-driven activity to transform the conduct of geosciences research and education, sponsored through a partnership between the NSF Directorate of Geosciences and Division of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure in the Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering. EarthCube aims to create a well-connected and facile environment to share data and knowledge in an open, transparent, and inclusive manner, thus accelerating the ability of the geosciences community to understand and predict the Earth system. Achieving EarthCube will require a long-term dialog between NSF and the interested scientific communities to develop cyberinfrastructure that is thoughtfully and systematically built to meet the current and future needs of geoscientists. <br /><br />The critical importance of a community-driven and operated governance structure for EarthCube activities has been highlightedin the past severalyears of EarthCube development. The EarthCube Test Enterprise Governance Project has recommended an EarthCube Governance Framework which describes the organizational units and functionsnecessary for EarthCube Governance. The specific charter, by-laws, and terms of references for that governance framework is describedmay be found here: <a href=""></a>. The EarthCube Governance Framework is intended to be a living document with review and revision by the community as required for the changing needs of EarthCube.

This solicitation seeks the services of a qualified organization to provide a science support office for EarthCube governance. This organization will provide the services required to maintain and manage the community governance structures andsupport the activities articulated within the EarthCube Governance Framework documents. The award, to be administered as a Cooperative Agreement, is intended to cover an initial 3-year period.
