Booz Allen to Provide AI and ML Expertise to Support EPA Scientific Missions

Supports infusion of innovation for critical U.S. agency focused on protecting human health and the environment

Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) today announced it was awarded a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Research and Development (ORD) to support the agency’s modernization efforts and its mission to protect human health and the environment. Booz Allen won one of four positions on the seven-year Scientific Modeling, Application, Visualization, Computational Science, Software, and Statistical Support (SMAVCS4) BPA, which has a ceiling of $431 million.

Under this contract, Booz Allen will have the opportunity to provide AI, machine learning (ML), and data analytics capabilities, in addition to advanced technology like scientific modeling and geospatial analysis, to infuse innovation into the ongoing, critical efforts of the EPA to ensure Americans have clean air, land, and water; reduce environmental risks; and to provide accurate, science-based information to protect human health and the environment.

“Booz Allen has a long-standing history of supporting technical and scientific work at the highest levels of government,” said Prachi Sukhatankar, vice president at Booz Allen and a leader in the firm’s climate and infrastructure business. “We're on a quest for breakthrough solutions that will protect the environment and human health, elevate U.S. economic prosperity, and bolster national security. This newest EPA endeavor will allow us to continue our work in propelling our innovation ecosystem and solutions within climate missions—using AI, for instance, to make scientific data more actionable and usable.”

Leveraging its deep talent pool, mission understanding, and expertise in statistical and applied environmental science, Booz Allen is well-positioned to help EPA ORD elevate the use of scientific and technical data to improve the speed, quality, accuracy, and defensibility of agency-wide science related to disaster relief, clean drinking water, human health, and more.

"The SMAVCS4 BPA aligns with Booz Allen's growth strategy of Velocity, Leadership and Technology (VoLT) by addressing climate resiliency as a mission of national importance,” said Dave Sulek, senior vice president and a strategy and policy expert leading climate and infrastructure work at Booz Allen. “This work also enables our firm to apply and fully capitalize on our significant investments in digital, advanced data analytics, AI, and ML technologies to support ORD’s most pressing scientific, mission, and programmatic priorities to strengthen the nation’s resiliency.”
