Engility Wins $10 Million Award to Support USAID Efforts to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Guatemala

Engility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:EGL) today announced that it has been awarded a $10.1 million contract to provide technical advisory services to the Guatemala office of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Guatemalan government to support the development and implementation of a low emissions development strategy (LEDS). The five-year contract represents new work and is a cost plus fixed fee award.

“Through programs such as the Climate Change Resilient Development Project and task orders under the Environmental Policy and Institutional Governance II Indefinite Quantity Contract (IQC), Engility has been a leader in providing guidance and strategies for climate change with USAID over the last five years,” said Engility President and CEO Tony Smeraglinolo. “We appreciate the confidence USAID has placed in us, and our team of professionals in Guatemala looks forward to providing outstanding service under this new work.”

Engility has 12 years of experience in Guatemala, supporting work to improve natural resource management, environmental policy frameworks, disaster risk management capacities, and rural development.

Under the USAID/Guatemala Low Emissions Development Strategy Project, Engility will support USAID/Guatemala and collaborate with the Guatemalan government, the Guatemalan private sector, academia, and non-governmental organizations. The team will build local capacity to help implement emissions reduction projects related to large-and-small-scale agriculture, natural resource management, and other forms of land use. The goal is to demonstrate the feasibility of meeting economic targets while advancing climate change mitigation.

The team also will help the Guatemalan government finalize the national greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) inventory, determine which areas of the economy are producing large amounts of emissions, and perform cost-benefit analyses to identify economic investments that will result in significant GHG emissions reductions.

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
