ICF (NASDAQ:ICFI), a leading provider of professional services and technology-based solutions to government and commercial clients, was recently awarded a new contract with the Social Security Administration (SSA), Office of Security and Emergency Preparedness (OSEP). The contract has a value of $9.6 million and a term of five years, including one base year and four option years.
ICF will continue to help OSEP maintain and improve its security processes and nationwide oversight using SSA's Security Automated Features and Enhancements (SAFE) solution.

SAFE is comprised of a sophisticated security model that provides role-based access control and workflows designed to help the agency comply with security-related federal mandates and maintain centralized oversight of more than 1,500 offices nationwide.
“Since 2004, ICF has assisted the Social Security Administration in the automation of its security business processes,” said Lynn DeCourcey, vice president for ICF. “During this time, we have worked with the agency to provide customer-focused, integrated solutions that ensure its ability to meet increasingly complex security requirements and stringent federal mandates.”
In addition to overall project management, ICF will provide onsite day-to-day support and conduct other activities to ensure the continued maintenance of SAFE. These activities include conducting business and requirements analyses, designing and developing new applications, updating existing applications, as well as supporting the client’s documentation, training and customer service needs.
