Engility Wins $10 Million Award to Support USAID Efforts to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Guatemala

Engility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:EGL) today announced that it has been awarded a $10.1 million contract to provide technical advisory services to the Guatemala office of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Guatemalan government to support the development and implementation of a low emissions development strategy (LEDS). The five-year contract represents new work and is a cost plus fixed fee award.

“Through programs such as the Climate Change Resilient Development Project and task orders under the Environmental Policy and Institutional Governance II Indefinite Quantity Contract (IQC), Engility has been a leader in providing guidance and strategies for climate change with USAID over the last five years,” said Engility President and CEO Tony Smeraglinolo. “We appreciate the confidence USAID has placed in us, and our team of professionals in Guatemala looks forward to providing outstanding service under this new work.”

Engility has 12 years of experience in Guatemala, supporting work to improve natural resource management, environmental policy frameworks, disaster risk management capacities, and rural development.

Under the USAID/Guatemala Low Emissions Development Strategy Project, Engility will support USAID/Guatemala and collaborate with the Guatemalan government, the Guatemalan private sector, academia, and non-governmental organizations. The team will build local capacity to help implement emissions reduction projects related to large-and-small-scale agriculture, natural resource management, and other forms of land use. The goal is to demonstrate the feasibility of meeting economic targets while advancing climate change mitigation.

The team also will help the Guatemalan government finalize the national greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) inventory, determine which areas of the economy are producing large amounts of emissions, and perform cost-benefit analyses to identify economic investments that will result in significant GHG emissions reductions.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...
The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big D...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp.

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment.
