Broadhead Awarded Multiyear Contracts from USDA APHIS

Broadhead has been awarded two multi-year contracts from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS).

Broadhead will partner with the agency on the Asian Longhorned Beetle (ALB) Public Awareness Campaign. The program’s efforts work toward halting the spread of the devastating pest, and preventing it from becoming established.

In addition, Broadhead was one of eight firms to secure an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract from USDA APHIS for a period of up to five years.

“We’re honored to be working with USDA APHIS on raising awareness of invasive species in this country,” says Dean Broadhead, president/CEO. “We look forward to continuing our relationship with the agency for many years.”

Broadhead recently concluded a one-year campaign with USDA APHIS aimed at preventing the spread of the gypsy moth. Since it became a federal government contractor in late 2008, Broadhead has worked with the General Services Administration, USDA APHIS, USDA Rural Development, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
