FEMA chooses 3 firms for $610M response support contract

The Federal Emergency Management Agency chooses three companies for a potential five-year, $610 million contract for services to support emergency responses.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has awarded three companies positions on a potential five-year, $610 million contract for advisory and assistance services to support FEMA’s emergency response and disaster recovery missions.

Fluor Corp., Serco Group’s North American subsidiary and CH2M Hill will perform technical assistance and infrastructure support work the agency has divided into three geographic zones for each individual awardee.

Fluor was selected for the Zone 1 portion that covers 19 states primarily along the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts. Serco Inc. was chosen for Zone 2 that covers 17 states primarily across the Midwest. CH2M Hill was picked for Zone 3 that covers the remaining 14 states including those along the Pacific Coast.

FEMA disclosed the Public Assistance Technical Assistance Contracts IV awards in a trio of FedBizOpps notices on Dec. 20. Contractors will be required to have pre-positioned staff and resources in their zones as needed, according to the solicitation issued in May.

PA TAC IV covers professional services such as engineering, architecture, cost estimating, accounting and commercial property insurance. Work also includes non-professional services the agency expects to constitute 80 percent of the contract’s overall requirement, the solicitation says.

The contract’s duration is for a one-year base period and up to four individual option years. Work would take place through November 2022 if FEMA exercises all options.
