ICF keeps $214.2M prime role on USAID health program

ICF will continue its role on a key U.S. Agency for International Development health program the company has supported since the agency started it three decades ago to help other countries in capacity building.

USAID on Monday awarded a new five-year, $214.2 million contract to ICF for the eighth iteration of the Demographic and Health Surveys initiative, the agency said in a FedBizOpps notice.

Started in 1984, the DHS program sees USAID collaborate with developing countries to help them collect and distribute data on population health. Specific issues include fertility, family planning, maternal and child health, gender, HIV/AIDS, malaria and nutrition.

The program has supported more than 90 countries in survey design and sampling, training, field work, data tabulation and analysis, report writing, and distribution and use of findings.

USAID applies methods such as GPS data collection and use of biomarkers to carry out the surveys and collect data.

This was the largest government contract in ICF’s portfolio and represented 2 percent of total annual revenue, according to an Aug. 3 research note by Lucy Guo, government services analyst at investment bank Cowen & Co.

No single government contract exceeds 3 percent of total annual sales, ICF said in an August investor presentation.
