Two joint ventures have captured spots on a $600 million FEMA contract to provide flood and other risk data.
One joint venture, Compass PTS, is led by AECOM, and its members include ABS Group, CDM Federal Programs Corporation, T&M Associates, Halff Associates and Fugro EarthData Inc.
The second joint venture, STARR II, includes Atkins Global, Greenhorne & O’Mara, Stantec and CDM Smith. Greenhoren & O’Mara is a subsidiary of Stantec.
FEMA negotiated the contract with the two joint ventures and didn’t publicly release a solicitation for the contract, according to an FBO.gov notice
According to announcements by the two joint ventures, they will compete for task orders for services such as risk mapping, assessment and planning, hazard mitigation technical assistance, and research.
The risk mapping, assessment and planning combines flood hazard mapping, risk assessment tools and hazard mitigation planning into an integrated program that encourages building more resilient communities, according to an announcement by ABS Group.
The contract runs for five years with additional option years possible.
