Norfolk is one of 10 cities receiving assistance from McLean-based firm
McLean-based global IT consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton has pledged to keep its 27,000 workers employed at least through July 1 during the COVID-19 crisis, and has also pledged funding to support employees dealing with health care and child care issues.
The company announced Thursday it will redirect $100 million to a “pandemic resilience program” to support employees, including those in Norfolk, where Booz Allen Hamilton has a large presence. The company will make donations to nonprofit organizations including the CDC Foundation, the COVID-19 Military Support Initiative and Feeding America. Norfolk’s food banks affiliated with Feeding America will receive directed funding, the company said.
Booz Allen also plans to provide pro bono work and in-kind contributions to organizations and communities affected most by the coronavirus, contributing technology and expertise in cyber technology and digital modernization.
In March 2019, Booz Allen recorded $6.7 billion in revenue over the previous 12 months, and earlier this year it won a $147.4 million contract to provide technical support for the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
