Tetra Tech was one of 13 companies selected by USAID to be on call for work under the agency’s third Global Architect-Engineer Services contract.
The work ceiling for the contract is $800 million, meaning that the total amount of work awarded to all 13 companies over the next seven years cannot exceed that amount. How much each company ultimately receives depends on the nature and scope of each individual work project awarded to that particular company.
USAID selected the 13 companies in June, but several of them, including Tetra Tech, chose to wait a few months to publicize the contract award.
The agency administers the U.S. foreign assistance program providing economic and humanitarian assistance in more than 100 countries worldwide.

“We look forward to continuing to apply our ‘leading with science’ approach to design climate-resilient infrastructure across the globe,” Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech’s chief executive, said in a statement.
