ICF, world leader in climate, energy and environment consultancies, was awarded a $34 million contract to provide technical and administrative support to the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP).

Firstly, the contract was awarded to ICF by NASA, and it is valued at $34 million, as said above; it includes an $8 million indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity component. And also, a term of five years, including a one-year base and four one-year option periods.

Secondly, after the contract, ICF will support the program in delivering coordinated research; assessments, education and communications across the program’s 13 participating departments and agencies.

Thirdly, as the USGCRP not only addresses climate change, but other global-scale issues including changes in land productivity; also, water resources, atmospheric chemistry, energy efficiency and ecological systems; ICF will provide knowledge in all those areas.

Moreover, the work by ICF will also include the development and release of the Fifth National Climate Assessment; which is the gold standard footprint for describing the science of climate change; and its impacts across the U.S. and the world.
