Annapolis, MD (PRWEB) January 25, 2010
LRS Federal, a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned engineering and technical services company, was awarded a four-year, $5.6M contract by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to conduct air monitoring support for Washington DC and the surrounding area. This contract will specifically support the DHS Office of Health Affairs (OHA) BioWatch program, a biodefense program to help protect the health and medical security of the homeland. The BioWatch program provides continuous surveillance for aerosolized exposures caused by intentional release of biological agents.
Under this contract, LRS Federal will perform services that include sample collection, operations and maintenance, new technology integration and emergency/critical support.

This contract continues LRS Federal’s monitoring and technology development support for the Departments of Defense and Energy.
“We are pleased and humbled that DHS chose LRS Federal among all of the small businesses that are qualified to perform this critically important service for protecting the nation’s capitol and the surrounding communities,” said Tom Scott, LRS President. “This contract allows us to integrate our engineering, field services and technology development expertise to support the homeland security mission. We take our responsibility seriously and commit ourselves completely to meeting the high expectations established by the Office of Health Affairs.”
