The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) awarded Jacobs Engineering a contract to support post-disaster response and recovery across 17 U.S. states and territories.

Through the Public Assistance Technical Assistance Contract IV (PA TAC IV), FEMA provides supplemental federal disaster grant assistance for debris removal, emergency protective measures and the repair, replacement and restoration of disaster-damaged, publicly owned facilities and the facilities of certain private nonprofit organizations. The program also encourages protection of damaged facilities from future events by providing assistance for hazard mitigation measures during the recovery process.

“We will support the post-disaster response and recovery mission with a highly experienced team and a strong track record of successfully delivering projects with FEMA,” said Jacobs Global Environmental Solutions Senior Vice President and General Manager Jan Walstrom.  

The indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, which has an estimated ceiling value of $610 million, encompasses professional services for engineering, architecture, cost estimating, accounting, commercial property insurance, project management, construction management and inspection.

With a one-year base contract period and up to four individual option years, the work includes supporting disaster operations in FEMA Region II: New Jersey, New York, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands; Region VII: Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska; Region IX: Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Pacific Islands; and Region X: Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, Washington.

Under the previous PA TAC III FEMA contract, Jacobs was awarded more than $500 million to provide public assistance, recovery operations, construction and project management and technical services, including recovery support to Puerto Rico in response to Hurricane Maria.
