URS wins share of $800m US naval deal

10 Jul 13 URS Corporation has won a contract with the US Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Atlantic, for emergency construction projects worldwide.

The maximum aggregate value of the contract to four awardees, including a one-year base period and four option years, is US$800m.

“URS has a long history of supporting the military on major engineering and construction projects around the world,” URS president, infrastructure & environment Gary Jandegian. “We are proud to have been selected for this assignment and to continue to play a role in the Navy’s contingency construction mission requirements.”

Under the terms of the contract, URS can compete for or be awarded task orders by the US Navy on behalf of the Department of Defense, and other federal agencies when authorised, for construction and engineering services related to natural disasters, humanitarian assistance, conflict, or other projects with similar characteristics.

In conjunction with construction efforts, URS may also be asked to provide initial base operating support services incidental to construction under specific task orders.
