HHS Contract for Technical Management, Assistance on AIDS.gov Web Site Awarded to ICF International

Firm to Help Agency Enhance Features, Implement New Tools

 

 

Fairfax, Virginia, May 1, 2008 -

ICF International (NASDAQ: ICFI) was selected by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of HIV/AIDS Policy, to provide technical management and assistance to maintain and enhance its AIDS.gov Web site. Under the new contract, ICF will implement new media tools such as mobile technology, expand existing Web 2.0 technologies, and enhance the agency’s separate HIV/AIDS Awareness Days Web site and migrate it to the AIDS.gov domain. The one-year contract with two option years is valued at $1.2 million.

ICF worked with HHS to develop the initial release of AIDS.gov for World AIDS Day in 2006. Since then, the firm has implemented new media components such as RSS feeds, a Blog site, and Podcasts with streaming videos. In February 2008, the firm implemented an enhanced version of the site that was awarded the American Association of Webmasters Gold Award.

“ICF has a long and successful history supporting HHS programs through social marketing and the innovative use of information technology,” said Ellen Glover, an executive vice president with ICF and an IT expert. “We are committed to the AIDS.gov mission and look forward to continuing our support of this important initiative.”

AIDS.gov is a gateway to guide users to federal domestic HIV/AIDS information and resources on prevention, testing, treatment, and research programs, policies, and resources. It is a collaborative effort among several federal agencies, including HHS, the Centers for Disease Control, National Institutes of Health, and the Food and Drug Administration. The AIDS.gov Web site supports their efforts through its Web portal and highlights new partner content, complete with links directly to partners’ websites.

These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.

You should read statements that contain these words carefully because they discuss our future expectations, contain projections of our future results of operations or of our financial position, or state other forward-looking information, and are subject to factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated. For ICF, particular uncertainties that could adversely or positively affect the Company’s future results include but are not limited to: risks related to the government contracting industry, including the timely approval of government budgets, changes in client spending priorities, and the results of government audits and investigations; risks related to our business, including our dependence on contracts with U.S. Federal Government agencies and departments and the State of Louisiana; continued good relations with these and other customers; success in competitive bidding on recompete and new contracts; performance by ICF and its subcontractors under our contract with the State of Louisiana, Office of Community Development, including but not limited to the risks of failure to achieve certain levels of program activities, termination, or material modification of the contract, and political uncertainties relating to The Road Home program; uncertainties as to whether revenues corresponding to the Company’s contract backlog will actually be received; the future of the energy sector of the global economy; our ability to attract and retain management and staff; strategic actions, including attempts to expand our service offerings and client base, the ability to make acquisitions, and the performance and future integration of acquired businesses; risks associated with operations outside the United States, including but not limited to international, regional, and national economic conditions, including the effects of terrorist activities, war, and currency fluctuations; and other risks and uncertainties disclosed in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
