Berrett & Associates, Inc. employees, subcontractors and consultant staff have an aggregate of over 40 years of total experience working with at the U.S. EPA, both as Federal and contract employees, at the technical and management level, at the beginning of the ITS-EPA contract.  Over the duration of this contract, this experience has more than doubled in terms of person-years of direct EPA IT infrastructure support activities.  The experience includes management, planning and technical execution at all levels within the EPA IT networking infrastructure.  It also includes conducting detailed management and planning work in a distributed-service IT environment under the “Working Capital Fund” mechanism.

The scope of Berrett & Associates, Inc. contracted services includes:   Project Management; IT professional services including LAN/WAN Design; implementation, maintenance and 24x7 monitoring  and management of EPA’s national network; firewalls and related security services for network security; network support/administration; network/telecom services; planning and analysis; system design and architecture; and related IT services and customer interface.

In addition to a project manager, Berrett & Associates, Inc. provided high-level certified Cisco systems and engineers and other technical staff to design, acquire, implement and manage a new national network for the U.S. EPA, replacing the point-to-point Wide Area Network (WAN.)
The network requirements included providing service to more than 24,000 Federal and contractor employees at 80 locations throughout the continental United States and several overseas locations. Additional requirements included creating highly reliable and robust connectivity to the internet, supporting emerging protocols and providing services such as metro-area VoIP and agency-wide point-to-point, broadcast/multicast video. 

The resulting network met and exceeded all service and performance requirements and substantially expanded the available bandwidth—and all for a fraction of the cost of the previous network.  Berrett & Associates, Inc. has employed more than 30 on-site professionals with the right skill set to meet the ongoing IT needs of the ITS-EPA project.
