FAIRFAX, Va., Aug. 24, 2022 — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently selected global consulting and digital services provider ICF as an awardee under the new multiple-award Environmental, Analytical, Research, Technical, and Hybrid (EARTH) Support Services blanket purchase agreement (BPA) to provide a broad range of environmental consulting services to the Office of Air and Radiation (OAR).
ICF was awarded one of six prime contracts on the BPA in the large business category. The five-year BPA has a ceiling value of $5.7 billion across all awardees, with $700 million of the award allocated for professional services.
To support the EARTH BPA, ICF will bring its expertise in climate, energy and environmental policy and regulation, as well as research, data analysis and modeling; marketing, engagement and communications; and more. The company will also bring proven approaches to effectively managing large and complex federal programs.

ICF has supported many of EPA’s flagship climate programs since their inception, including the annual Inventory of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks, the ENERGY STAR® program and the American Innovation and Manufacturing Act.
