RESTON, Va. , Feb. 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) recently awarded global consulting and technology services provider ICF (NASDAQ:ICFI) a $29 million contract to develop an equitable and accessible transportation mobility services program through technological innovations. The recompete contract for ICF has a term of five years with an option to extend for one additional year.
