Booz Allen to Help CDC Manage Geospatial Tech Program; Grant McLaughlin Comments

BoozAllenLogoBooz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) has won a five-year, $15.8 million contract to help the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention use geospatial science and technology for public health research.

The agency’s Geospatial Research Analysis and Services Program seeks to promote the use of geographic information systems across the public health community, including CDC’s Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, Booz Allen said Monday.

Grant McLaughlin, a Booz Allen vice president, said the firm intends to help CDC address environmental health and emergency and preparedness response issues under the GRASP program.

Booz Allen will help CDC collect geographical data, analyze remote sensory images, design databases and develop mobile applications, among other areas of work.

CDC has worked with Booz Allen since 2007 to research and analyze the geospatial trends and patterns that potentially affect factors associated with environmental health, infectious and chronic diseases.

GRAPS is also intended to provide data to scientists and researchers and help them collaborate with their peers to promote and use geospatial technology.
