Woolpert Awarded Part of $610M FEMA Contract to Support Disaster Relief

DAYTON, Ohio (Jan. 9, 2018) — Woolpert will provide technical engineering and architecture resources under a five-year, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance Technical Assistance Contract (PA TAC) IV, which has a ceiling value of $610 million. Serco Inc., the prime contractor, is a professional, technology and management services provider. Serco has partnered with Woolpert to evaluate and assess damage and needed repairs to public infrastructure after a presidentially declared natural disaster or emergency.

This nationwide FEMA contract divides its assistance to governmental entities, tribes and nonprofit organizations into three zones. Woolpert will provide resources within Zone 2, which includes Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana.

Woolpert—an international architecture, engineering and geospatial (AEG) firm—collected high-resolution, before-and-after imagery to assist local, state and federal agencies in disaster relief after hurricanes Irma and Harvey in 2017 and after massive flooding in South Carolina in 2015. This is the 107-year-old firm’s first contract to provide engineering and architectural resources in response to natural disasters and emergencies.

“This immediate, accurate assessment of public infrastructure will help identify which roads, bridges, ports, harbors, airports, etc., are structurally sound in the wake of a catastrophe,” said Matt Harrison, Woolpert program director. “This information, like the imagery, will accelerate recovery efforts and help affected regions more quickly rebound and rebuild. We’re extremely proud to help FEMA and Serco by providing these needed services.”
