ICF Wins Contract to Help Implement Energy Policies
ICF Incorporated, LLC, a subsidiary of ICF International on Jan. 22 announced that it won a new indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Air and Radiation (OAR). The five-year agreement, which began in January, 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. The agency is engaged in a number of local, state, regional, and national clean energy program activities. ICF will provide direct technical assistance; conduct analyses, studies, and evaluations of clean energy technologies on air quality, climate change, and human health; develop guidance and tools based on the outcome of these investigations; and provide 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 governments and providing technical assistance to 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 under way. 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."
