Software to help EPA track data

ERT Software Support

The Environmental Protection Agency recently awarded Signal Corp. a five-year, $6 million contract to develop software that manages data collected by response teams dealing with hazardous materials and spills control.

EPA's Edison, N.J.-based Emergency Response Team Center will use the technology to share and manage information. The center supports the Office of Emergency and Remedial Response and its project managers, on-site coordinators and other agency groups in the field.

The software developed under the contract will enable teams to capture, store and analyze data. Furthermore, users will able to enter and access information via PCs, local-area networks, the World Wide Web and wireless devices.

"These are tools to actually store the data and track the data," said Robert Danziger, Signal's director of business operation for the mid-Atlantic region.

The contract follows a previous five-year task order Signal had with the EPA. Under that contract, it began providing applications, support, training and a hot line for users in the field. It also developed the response team center's Web site.

"It's an ongoing thing because the requirements are continually changing," Danziger said. Project work on the new order began April 1 in Edison.
