TULSA, Okla. – Cherokee Nation Technologies announced today it has received a services support contract with the United States Geological Survey (USGS) that has the potential of reaching $45 million throughout multiple years.

“This is a significant opportunity for CNT, and we are pleased to be continuing and expanding our relationship with the USGS,” said Steven Bilby, president of Cherokee Nation’s diversified businesses. “Our team takes great pride in supporting our government clients and generating revenue to help provide services for the Cherokee people.”

The indefinite-delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract begins with a base-year and includes four one-year options, each with a ceiling of $9M.
