Company Developing Complex Models to Study Issues such as Global Climate Change for the EPA
Falls Church, Va., March 9, 2016 – CSRA Inc. (NYSE:CSRA), a leading provider of next-generation IT solutions and professional services to government organizations, today announced it was awarded a re-competed contract to create, apply and distribute complex environmental simulations in support of research initiatives conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Research and Development (ORD). The contract is valued at $54 million over the span of seven years.
“One of our critical focuses at CSRA is supporting the advancement of science and technology as it relates to environmental monitoring, citizen services and climate change,” said Larry Prior, CSRA's President and CEO. “Our mission directly supports and complements the EPA’s charge to protect human health and the environment. We are using best-in-class technologies, scientific applications and visualization technologies to develop sophisticated environmental models and simulations that enable in-depth research for environmental issues such as global climate change that are too large to replicate in the real world.”
The Scientific Models, Applications, Visualization, Computational Science and Statistical Support contract represents a re-compete of previous task orders held by the companies that came together to form CSRA. Under this award CSRA will continue providing scientific support resources at multiple ORD locations, which will be leveraged throughout EPA for all types of modeling application and support.
“This contract is a prime example of how CSRA has combined its resources to strengthen our ability to serve the important environmental missions of the EPA,” continued Prior.
