Biodefense is a complex concept defined by Homeland Security Presidential Directive 21 (HSPD-21) as “active data-gathering with appropriate analysis and interpretation of biosphere data that might relate to disease activity and threats to human or animal health —whether infectious, toxic, metabolic, or otherwise, and regardless of intentional or natural origin — in order to achieve early warning of health threats, early detection of health events, and overall situational awareness of disease activity” (White House, 2007).
- Electronic Integrated Disease Surveillance System (EIDSS)
- Pathogen Asset Control System (PACS)
BioSafety & Security
Biosafety is the safety of human and environment from unintentional release of pathogenic microorganisms and biohazards. On the contrary, Biosecurity is the protection of human and environment from intentional release of biohazards by an individual.

Black & Veatch prepares design criteria, and the development and review of architectural engineering designs, specifications, design-related analyses and studies, and cost estimates for BSl 2 and BSL 3 labs. These laboratories enhance the government’s existing disease surveillance systems to detect, report and respond to bioterrorism attacks, epidemics, and potential pandemics.
We are able to renovate old or existing facilities into state-of-the-art diagnostics laboratories. The BSL 3 laboratories have been specifically designed and constructed to support work with especially dangerous pathogens that can be naturally occurring or introduced through a bioterrorism attack. The lab also provides our clients a safe environment to confirm diagnosis of suspected dangerous pathogens, enhancing public health while deterring bioterrorism.
