EMS Wins 10th Federal Superfund Contract

EMS has been awarded a major contract to provide management and analytical assistance to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) headquarters Superfund Office. The contract has an estimated value of $33.4 million over five years. EMS President N. Jay Bassin said that this contract represents the tenth award by EPA's Superfund Program to EMS, continuing a relationship that began in 1991.

The EMS Team for this contract includes Computer Sciences Corporation, Industrial Economics, Inc., Skeo Solutions, Inc., and SRA International. "EMS's staff and teaming partners are extremely gratified by EPA's continued confidence in our ability to provide quality, timely, and cost-effective services with full accountability for successful performance," Bassin said.

Under the new contract, EMS's team will support all of EPA's headquarters and regional offices by researching and evaluating scientific, technological, economic, community outreach, and human and ecological health issues associated with Superfund sites and by providing logistical and administrative support for conferences, record-keeping, and data management related to the Superfund Program. The federal Superfund Program was designed by Congress to clean up the nation's worst environmental sites, many of which have no current financially responsible owner.
