The Louis Berger Group has won a potential $860 million Army contract modification to help supply temporary power in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands nearly two months after Hurricane Maria.
The Army Corps of Engineers received two bids for the contract and work will take place through Sept. 30, 2018, the Defense Department said in its Wednesday contracts digest.
Louis Berger’s U.S. division has deployed at least 300 staffers and independent contractors to the region since Maria caused severe damage to both Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands including near-complete destruction of power grids, the company said Oct. 9.
Those workers are supporting agencies such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Army Corps of Engineers, Postal Service and Defense Logistics Agency
