ICF award helps FEMA prepare for radiological emergencies

Recompete contract includes professional, program management support services

ICF International Inc. has won a five-year recompete contract worth more than $15 million from the Homeland Security Department to help the Federal Emergency Management Agency implement its Radiological Emergency Preparedness program.

Under the contract announced Sept. 7, 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 advise the agency on revisions and updates to current policy and regulatory documents necessary to fully integrate REP into the National Preparedness System.

The Radiological Emergency Preparedness program was established in 1980 to address the need for communities near 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 to have been chosen by FEMA to support its REP program since the contract was first opened to the private sector in 2000, the announcement states.

ICF International, of Fairfax, Va., ranks No. 64 on Washington Technology’s 2011 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
