ICF International Awarded FEMA Contract Valued at More Than $15 Million to Implement Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program
Program Critical to Protection of Public Health and Safety in Communities Surrounding Nuclear Generating Facilities
Fairfax, Virginia, September 7, 2011 -
ICF International (NASDAQ: ICFI), a leading provider of consulting services and technology solutions to government and commercial clients, today announced it won a re-compete contract from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to implement the agency’s Radiological Emergency Preparedness (REP) program. The contract has a value of more than $15 million and a term of one base year and four option years.
The REP program was established in 1980 to address the need for communities surrounding the United States’ commercial nuclear power plants to build robust, effective preparedness and response capabilities to deal with potential radiological emergencies. ICF International is the only firm that FEMA has chosen to support its REP program since the contract was first opened to the private sector in 2000.
“We are pleased to continue our efforts supporting FEMA and appreciate its vote of confidence in us to continue the critical mission of protecting these communities in the event of a radiological disaster,” said Andy Robinson, senior vice president for ICF International. “Backed by the expertise of our people, the breadth of our knowledge, and state-of-the-art technology, ICF is able to address the challenges inherent in programs like this while continually improving processes and maintaining high-quality support for our client.”
Under the contract, ICF brings a full range of professional and program management support services, including 100 qualified evaluators, to perform in-depth assessments of state and local emergency preparedness surrounding U.S. nuclear power plants at FEMA’s full-scale exercises. Additionally, ICF experts will evaluate the adequacy of emergency preparedness plans and will develop communications strategies and campaigns to inform communities about emergency preparedness. ICF also will work with the agency to advise on revisions and updates to current policy and regulatory documents necessary to fully integrate REP into the National Preparedness System.
