Shaw Wins Contract for Test and Evaluation Facility
The Shaw Group Inc. said its Environmental & Infrastructure Group has been awarded a fifth consecutive contract by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to provide operations support and research services for the Test and Evaluation (T&E) facility and other National Risk Management Research Laboratory (NRMRL) facilities.
Under this five-year cost-plus-fixed-fee, level-of-effort contract, Shaw will continue supporting the agency's research to evaluate drinking water and hazardous waste treatment technologies, protect the nation's aging water infrastructure, address global climate change/water security issues, and study the environmental impacts of nanotechnology.
The recent award expands the scope of Shaw's previous contracts to include on-site support of critical scientific research used to formulate environmental policies and programs at the T&E facility and other NRMRL satellite facilities. The value of Shaw's contract, which will be included in the company's fourth quarter fiscal year 2009 backlog of unfilled orders, was not disclosed.
"During the last 20 years, Shaw has supported the federal government in advancing scientific and engineering solutions, enabling the EPA and others to manage current and future environmental risks effectively," said George Bevan, president of Shaw's Environmental & Infrastructure Group.
