Versar Awarded $7.6 Million Contract By U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

Versar, Inc. (NYSE Amex:VSR) announced today that it was awarded a five-year, $7.6 million contract to review and evaluate pesticide product and residue chemistry data by the Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP), Health Effects Division (HED), of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA’s award of this new contract to Versar increases the total number of contracts to six currently managed by Versar’s Exposure and Risk Assessment Division.

Under this new contract, Versar will review and evaluate product and residue chemistry data for the registration and re-registration of pesticides; perform data analysis and database development; and prepare technical presentations. The support under this contract will assist the OPP under their regulatory mandates, and will continue Versar’s more than 20 years of support to the EPA’s pesticide exposure assessment programs.

Tony Otten, CEO of Versar, said, "Versar continues to expand our funded backlog with the win of important new contracts. While Versar has worked with the EPA’s pesticides program for two decades, this win moves us into new areas and scientific disciplines. The EPA’s pesticides programs are among the EPA’s highest priorities to better characterize chemical exposures and risks to our communities. Versar brings innovative approaches and rigorous scientific analysis to support EPA’s programs that ensure the safety of all our citizens."
