The contract, upon execution, is aimed to support specialized clean air and environment audits with professional audit services and materials. The period of performance of the contract includes a one-year base period and four one-year options.

"The auditing and assessing of the public health implications that various pollutants cause in today’s environment is critical to protecting human health,” stated Chris Amos, Alion senior vice president and manager of the Technology Solutions (News - Alert) Group.
Alion Science and Technology delivers technical expertise and operational support to the Department of Defense, civilian government agencies and commercial customers.

Additionally, Alion will be offering professional services to assist the EPA with monitoring and testing the analytical systems. The agency will be assisted to manage and maintain states’ compliance with federal regulations that support a safe environment and clean air.
