The U.S. Agency for International Development has awarded four companies positions on a potential $400 million contract to help developing countries access clean energy.
USAID will issue task orders for technical assistance services in at least five priority countries under the five-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, the agency said in an April 30 FedBizOpps post.
Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, South Sudan and Yemen are listed as “critical priority countries” and the agency said that list is subject to change.
Contractors will compete to demonstrate new technologies and business models and aim to help countries transition to a low carbon trajectory.
- Dexis Consulting Group
- ECODIT LLC
- an Engility Corp. (NYSE: EGL) subsidiary
- Tetra Tech (NASDAQ: TTEK)
Engility said Wednesday its International Resources Group Ltd. subsidiary will compete for task orders until the contract reaches its $400 million shared ceiling.
Tony Smeraglinolo, Engility president and CEO, said IRG will compete to support energy reform efforts regarding legal, regulatory and corporate governance structures and mechanisms.
“Around the globe there is growing demand for responsible energy development and we are proud to have the opportunity to continue supporting USAID and its important mission, ” he said.
Smeraglinolo spoke to GovCon Wire in March on the company’s fiscal year 2012 earnings and cited another USAID clean energy IDIQ the company holds a position on as a key win during the fourth quarter.
