ICF International (NASDAQ:ICFI), a leading provider of consulting services and technology solutions to government and commercial clients, has been awarded a re-compete contract with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Office of Research and Development, supporting the National Center for Environmental Assessment’s efforts to conduct human health risk assessments. The contract has a value of approximately $33 million and a term of one base year and four option years.
Under this contract, ICF will continue to support EPA’s efforts on a broad range of activities, including conducting risk assessments on chemicals, chemical mixtures, and other environmental stressors. Additionally, ICF will help develop state-of-the-art methods, models, databases, and guidance documents for human health risk assessment and will support the development of toxicity reference values for EPA’s Integrated Risk Information System.
