ICF International awarded $34 million contract to support the Defense Critical Infrastructure Program

icfICF International of Fairfax, VA announced on September 13 that it has been awarded a new $34 million contract to strengthen the resilience of U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) assets and assess the potential vulnerability of critical infrastructure at installations around the world. The contract with the U.S. Navy’s Cyber Warfare and Engineering Division, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren, VA, supports the Defense Critical Infrastructure Program. The contract has a term of five years, including one base year and four option years.

With experts at the leading edge of physical and cyber security, ICF enables clients to reach higher levels of resilience by helping to define threats, assess risks, establish priorities and prepare ahead in the continuous cycle of ongoing risk management. ICF works with clients to define resilience solutions that strengthen communities, protect individuals, preserve economic vitality and bolster national security.

Under terms of the contract, ICF will strengthen resilience by performing risk assessments of physical and cyber infrastructure at DOD installations worldwide, conducting studies concerning the resilience of DOD assets to specific threats and hazards, and providing subject matter expertise across a range of technical disciplines in the identification of potential risks, the consequences of those risks, and system-wide or regional interdependencies. This work will inform defense leaders at the installation, service component, major command, and DOD levels as they make risk-informed decisions to mitigate threats and hazards to the department’s mission.

“ICF has a long history of delivering innovative solutions to protect critical assets,” said John Paczkowski, senior vice president for ICF International. “The selection of ICF for this crucial national security program continues to solidify our position as a leader in infrastructure resilience in the United States.” Samuel Visner, ICF senior vice president and general manager for cybersecurity and resilience, stated that “this award to ICF recognizes the wisdom of an integrated approach to physical and cyber risk assessment.”
