Guident to usher in EPA emergency management portal

Two-year award is worth $8 million to Herndon, Va., company

Guident will provide emergency management assistance to the Environmental Protection Agency under a two-year task order that could be worth as much as $8 million.

The work entails developing and integrating an Emergency Management Portal for EPA’s Office of Emergency Management, which will rely on the portal as a single point of entry for the emergency management community.

The portal will unite prevention, preparedness and response information to give EPA’s emergency management community quick access to the information needed to respond to human health and environmental emergencies related to oil and hazardous substance release, according to a May 11 company announcement.

The task order was issued through Guident’s agencywide blanket purchase agreement, and it brings the Herndon, Va., company’s total support since early 2009 to 15 business intelligence and systems engineering-related projects at nine EPA offices.

Among Guident’s recent awards was a four-year, $9.5 million contract to provide business intelligence support services to the Social Security Administration.
