Woolpert to Provide Geospatial Infrastructure Support
July 3, 2017

Woolpert, a national architecture, engineering and geospatial (AEG) firm, has announced that the firm will supply the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with geographic information system (GIS), remote sensing data and related consulting services in support of a five-year infrastructure information technology contract with CSRA. CSRA provides NextGen digital business solutions to U.S. government customers.

The EPA will consolidate services that will include data center management, application hosting, application deployment and maintenance, geospatial service support, network security, cybersecurity, cloud computing, Continuity of Operations (COOP) services, Enterprise Identity and Access Management (EIAM), and Active Directory (AD) under one contract, which is valued at $266 million (including all option years).

The infrastructure and application platforms will be reliable, secure and technologically advanced in support of the EPA’s work domestically and throughout the world.

Woolpert will perform GIS analysis, generate metadata, develop applications, provide GIS help desk support, and capture or produce high-definition and highly accurate geospatial information for the federal agency. This includes collections pertaining to emergency response, required environmental due diligence and Superfund sites. The EPA’s Superfund program is responsible for cleaning up some of the nation’s most contaminated land and responding to environmental emergencies, oil spills and natural disasters.

This project is expected to get underway in July.
