Fluor Corp. (NYSE: FLR) has won a position on a $500 million Federal Emergency Management Agency contract to support that agency’s disaster recovery efforts, the company announced Friday.
The announcement comes two days after URS Corp. (NYSE: URS) announced it also won a position on the five-year, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, which has one base year and four one-year renewal options.
The Department of Homeland Security agency awarded four such multiple award contracts under the Public Assistance Technical Assistance vehicle.
The Irving, Texas-based construction firm will provide technical assessment and project management services and will book work into its backlog as FEMA awards it.
Bruce Stanski, president of Fluor’s government group, said the company has provided technical support services to FEMA’s disaster recovery program for 15 years.
In 2005, Fluor said it helped FEMA deliver aid to more than 160, 000 victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in Louisiana.
