About ICF

big things

ICF is a global advisory and digital services provider, but we are not your typical consultants. We combine unmatched expertise with cutting-edge engagement capabilities to help clients solve their most complex challenges, navigate change, and shape the future.

Building a more prosperous and resilient world for all

Guided by our deeply held values and enduring commitment to corporate citizenship, we have one important thing in common: a passion for making a positive impact on the world.

50 years of impact

In 1969 a former Tuskegee Airman and three U.S. Department of Defense analysts founded the Inner City Fund to finance minority-owned businesses in Washington D.C. Since then, we’ve conducted the world’s largest global health survey, helped launch Energy Star, and modernized Amtrak customers’ digital experience, to name a few milestones.

Purpose-driven team

We’re business analysts and policy specialists working alongside digital strategists, data scientists, and creatives, united by a culture that values diversity and opportunity.

Embracing diversity to make a positive impact
