ICF Books $78M US Forest Service Deal to Modernize Geospatial Data System
Consulting and technology services company ICF has announced a potential seven-year, $78 million task order from the U.S. Forest Service to upgrade the Fire and Aviation Management Enterprise Geospatial Portal.
ICF said it will utilize its expertise in disaster management, climate solutions, cloud-native geospatial technology and analytics to develop a next-generation version of EGP.
USFS aims to acquire a scalable data solution to enhance decision-making by wildfire responders, ICF said.
The task order award was made under ICF’s General Services Administration IT Schedule and positions the company as the team lead alongside Xentity.
ICF CEO Mark Lee said his company offers, in addition to domain expertise, a track record of implementing technologies to “enhance community and environmental resilience.”
In September, the company secured a potential five-year, $30 million blanket purchase agreement to update the National Wildfire Coordinating Group’s training systems and support the standardization of incident position standards for wildland firefighters. The NWCG, through its incident performance and training modernization program, aims to deliver high-quality firefighter training and ensure interoperability across member organizations.
