Description and history
EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc., together with its wholly owned subsidiaries, is a global consulting firm that provides integrated solutions to environmental, safety, and health issues. Through its network of more than 20 regional and satellite offices, EA provides scientific, engineering, technology, and management solutions to federal, state, and local government, industrial and other private sector utility clients. The goal of the Company is to help management in industry and government improve their performance and achieve their business and organizational objectives.

EA’s organizational structure consists of the parent company, EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc.; its wholly owned subsidiaries, EA International, Inc. and EA Financial, Inc.; and EA Financial’s wholly owned subsidiaries, EA Global, Inc. and EA de Mexico, S.A. de C.V.

The Company was founded and initially incorporated in 1973. After a name change, the Company was subsequently incorporated in 1986. EA was initially engaged in environmental assessment and permitting related to power plant siting and expansion. Since that time, the Company has responded to market conditions and opportunities by expanding its technical expertise, service groups and client base. EA provides its services through a network of offices located throughout the United States, Mexico and Guam. The Company provides services directly to government, industrial, and utility clients and indirectly through work performed for architect/engineers, engineer/contractors, law firms and financial institutions.

In the Company’s role as an advocate and strategic resource to its clients, EA provides the management perspective and technical skills to anticipate, identify, address and resolve environmental, safety and health issues affecting business performance and profitability. EA integrates science, engineering, and technology to provide solutions to it clients’ complex environmental and health and safety issues affecting business performance and profitability. EA’s primary areas of service include Water Quality and Water Resources Management, Natural Resources and Risk Management, Site Characterization and Remediation, In-Plant and Industrial Hygiene Services, Solid Waste Management, Information Technology and Data Management, Air Quality and Energy Management, and Strategic Planning of Environmental Issues.

The multi-faceted nature of environmental problems requires an interdisciplinary team of professionals to provide integrated solutions. As such, strict classification by service type is not practical for most of the Company’s projects. In providing its services, EA has developed certain remedial and analytical technologies, planning and management services and processes for the mitigation and control of environmental damage and risks. In addition, the Company assists clients in responding to issues raised by regulatory agencies, community groups, and interested organizations. All of its service areas are part of vertically integrated capabilities that the Company may offer its clients.

The Company’s services normally are performed by a team of scientists, engineers, and planners, and include a combination of the following: consultation to determine the nature and scope of potential environmental, energy, or health and safety problems; development and implementation of solutions to identified issues; economic analyses, database development, strategic and tactical planning of environmental and/or and health and safety programs; on-site sampling, monitoring, and measurement of discharges and emissions; evaluation of environmental or human health risks; preparation of reports for regulatory agencies; participation and representation of clients in public and regulatory hearings; engineering certification of design specifications; design and implementation of remedial action; and environmental program management and outsourced support.

The Company’s contracts are generally undertaken on a time-and-materials, fixed-price, or cost-plus-fixed-fee basis. Fixed-price contracts and certain time-and-materials and cost-plus contracts with upset limits require EA to bear the risk of cost overruns. Most of the Company’s contracts provide that the client may at any time cancel any portion of the work not yet performed. During fiscal 2000, the majority of the Company’s work continued to be from fixed-price and time-and-materials contracts. In general, the Company’s contracts vary in length from one month to ten years and require performance within the contractually specified timeframe. Although the Company holds certain federal contracts with options for longer duration, most of these contracts require annual renewals by the client.
