Environmental Protection Agency Awards $11M IDIQ Contract to ICF International

ICF to Support EPA’s Clean Energy and Climate Change Programs

 

 

Fairfax, Virginia, January 22, 2009 -

ICF Incorporated, LLC, a subsidiary of ICF International (NASDAQ:ICFI), announced today that it won a new indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Air and Radiation (OAR). The five-year agreement, which begins January 2009, has a ceiling of $11.3 million.

Under the contract, ICF will support EPA’s efforts to help state and local governments develop and implement clean energy and climate change policies. EPA is currently engaged in a number of local, state, regional, and national clean energy program activities. ICF will support these agency activities by providing direct technical assistance to EPA and state and local governments; conducting analyses, studies, and evaluations of clean energy technologies on air quality, climate change, and human health; developing guidance and tools based on the outcome of these investigations; and providing meeting, workshop, and other communications support.

In supporting EPA, ICF will draw on a deep and broad body of experience gained from working directly for a variety of state and local governments on climate change and clean energy issues, and from providing technical assistance to the three major regional climate initiatives underway in the U.S.: the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, the Western Climate Initiative, and the Midwestern Greenhouse Gas Reduction Accord.

“We are likely to see major changes in the climate policy landscape over the next five years,” states Anne Choate, ICF vice president and program manager. “Over 30 states have already developed climate action plans, with more underway. Not surprisingly, clean energy strategies form the core of all of these plans. We are excited to be involved on the ground level of these initiatives.”

“With 25 years of climate change and clean energy experience, ICF stands ready to help EPA and its state and local partners design and implement effective clean energy strategies,” adds Dr. Karl Hausker, ICF vice president and deputy program manager.
