Monday September 25, 2000

ExR has signed a two-year extension of its current contract with Westinghouse Savannah River Company (WSRC) and the Department of Energy (DOE) to provide data management and environmental monitoring support services for WSRC’s groundwater and soils programs. The estimated value of the extension is $10 million. The original contract was to have expired September 31, 2000. The contract has been extended to September 21, 2002.

Under the contract, ExR provides the primary data management support for the largest groundwater monitoring program in the world at the Savannah River Site (SRS) in Aiken, SC. ExR also supports SRS’ soil monitoring program as required by the Resource Conservation Recovery Act, administered by the Environmental Protection Agency. ExR manages and disseminates environmental information associated with SRS operations, waste management, and cleanup activities by creating regulatory and public documents. ExR provides complete program support including sample scheduling; database design and management; programming; cost analysis; environmental consulting; and procedures, quality assurance, and software documentation.

In addition, ExR designs and maintains the computer system to manage the groundwater and soil database and provide instant site-wide Internet access through multiple platforms, including VAX, IBM PC, XWindows, and Macintosh work stations. Intranet and Internet applications are an integral part of this computer system.

“The exercise of the option years under our contract with WSRC offers us an opportunity to expand the services that we provide to SRS,” said Michael Rainer, CEO. “We’re delighted that WSRC is pleased with the quality of our work and confident in ExR’s ability to provide these important services.”
