National Park Service Selects Decision Lens for Prioritization of Contamination Clean-Up Efforts

Today, Decision Lens announced that the National Park Service (NPS) has selected Decision Lens software to support its strategic prioritization of contaminated site cleanup projects across Park lands. Decision Lens software will be used to enhance strategic decision-making and its alignment with investment level decisions.

NPS’ Contaminated Sites Program (CSP), with its strategic advisor, Rebecca Reynolds Consulting (RRC), is developing this decision-making model that will be used to identify the highest value portfolio of site cleanups across its inventory. This model may also serve as a pilot for potential Department-level strategic decision-making across the other five bureaus addressing contaminants issues.

Since 1916, NPS has been entrusted with the care of our national parks. With the help of volunteers and partners, they safeguard these special places and share their stories with more than 275 million visitors every year. NPS preserves unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the National Park System for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations. Addressing contamination resulting from historic land use and/or operational activities is central to the NPS mission.

“NPS joins a growing list of federal organizations who are engaging with Decision Lens to guide the very important alignment of organizational strategy with resources, and to decide where they can get the most value” said John Saaty, CEO of Decision Lens. “We are thrilled to be working collaboratively with CSP and RRC in this effort to further the mission of the National Park Service.”

Decision Lens software is used across numerous organizations for enhanced strategic prioritization and resource allocation. Commercial customers include Johnson & Johnson, Genentech, Health Quest, and Sikorsky among others.  Federal customers include the U.S. Joint Staff, Navy, Army, Air Force, General Services Administration, Department of Agriculture, and the Federal Aviation Administration among many others.  State and local government organizations include Washington State CIO, Ohio State CIO, DFW airport, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, the Mississippi Department of Transportation, and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency among others.

About CSP

CSP has also recovered or avoided $175 million from third party polluters, costs that would otherwise have been borne by the American public.
