NOVACES Announces Award with the Economic Development Administration for Disaster Recovery Services

NOVACES, a management consulting firm that provides disaster response and recovery services, announced today that it has been awarded a task order under its Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) for Disaster Recovery services to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration (EDA). Under this task order NOVACES, teamed with DADCO, will work with local, regional, state, and federal officials to develop economic recovery strategies, identifying recovery challenges and outlining technical assistance options and recovery actions that can be taken by officials of Faulkner County, Arkansas as a result of the deadly tornadoes they suffered earlier this year.

This work follows on similar work performed under this BPA in New Jersey in the aftermath of Super Storm Sandy and in Oklahoma in the wake of the May 2013 tornadoes. The firm's role in these recovery efforts builds on experience gained as a result of their role in the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster response. Agile Emergency Management, a technique NOVACES pioneered during the Deepwater Horizon spill response, is a revolutionary approach to incident management that improves disaster response logistics, delivers far better cost-control, and provides dashboard situational awareness for Incident Command leaders.

NOVACES, a management consulting firm headquartered in New Orleans, LA, provides performance management, continuous process improvement (CPI), and project management services to both public and private sector organizations. The firm developed a disaster and emergency response framework, called Agile Emergency Management, to accelerate the recovery process and provide a big picture perspective to executive stakeholders. More information can be found at or by calling 1-855-NOVACES.
