Stratus Consulting has been awarded a five-year contract to provide technical and outreach support services to the Climate Change Division (CCD) of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Stratus Consulting is one of several awardees who will be eligible to compete for individual projects from the CCD. The contract has a ceiling value of up to $26.8 million. This award initiates our 17th consecutive year of managing mission support contracts for the CCD (including those previously held by the Global Programs Division). Under past contracts, we have managed almost 280 work assignments and task orders, addressing such topics as building and running models of climate change impacts on key societal and natural resources; analyzing adaptation; supporting policy analysis on clean energy, offsets, and forestry emissions; studying options to control emissions of black carbon; and providing workshop and conference-related support.
