An ICF International business will establish a network of professionals that will work to assess and monitor the implementation of labor laws in the European Union under a potential $9 million contract.
ICF GHK intends to create, implement and manage the European employment policy observatory with a goal to provide experts with research and development resources for reports on initiatives, issues and programs, ICF said Monday.
The consultancy firm will provide services valued at approximately $2.2 million for a 12-month period as part of the transaction that has three option years.
“We look forward to playing our part in helping to support employment growth across Europe,“ said Jeanne Townend, an ICF executive vice president.
Eleanor Breen, an ICF International VP, said the EEPO will serve to provide solutions on how the European Commission can improve labor policies that aim to support jobseekers and ease unemployment in the region.
