Versar, Inc. Selects Locus' EIM as its Standard Environmental Data Management System
News Jan 14, 2014
Versar, Inc. has selected Locus Technologies’ (Locus’) Environmental Information Management (EIM) software to be its preferred environmental data management system for the firm’s Performance Based Remediation (PBR) program for the U.S. Air Force (USAF).
Versar will take advantage of EIM’s ability to support analytical data compatible with Environmental Resources Program Information Management System (ERPIMS), the electronic system that the Air Force uses for validation and management of data collected from environmental projects at its bases. In addition, Versar will utilize the ERPIMS regulatory export feature and the EIM data validation module.
Versar is currently providing PBR services to the USAF under the 2009 Worldwide Environmental Restoration and Construction (WERC 09) contract through September 2020. The Versar Program, as both Prime contractor and Team subcontractor, presently includes nearly 200 contaminated sites at 15 Air Force bases in 10 different states across the U.S. The total value of the work (if all options are awarded) is approximately $110M; Versar is the Prime contractor with direct responsibility for 128 sites valued at $93M under three separate Task Orders (TOs) and is a Team subcontractor on a fourth TO.
“We are very proud Versar has determined that EIM has the robust and versatile functionality to meet the company’s data management requirements for its USAF PBR Program,” said Neno Duplan, President & CEO of Locus. “We are constantly striving to incorporate specific features into our software, such as the ERPIMS compatibility, that will make a big difference for our customers.”

Machine Learning Model Provides Early Dementia DiagnosisNews
Improving dementia care through increased and timely diagnosis is an NHS priority, yet around half of those living with dementia live with the condition unaware. Now a new machine-learning model that scans routinely collected NHS data has shown promising signs of being able to predict undiagnosed dementia in primary care.
