Louis Berger, an engineering, planning, environmental and construction management firm, has been selected for the third consecutive 5-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract to support the USACE Institute for Water Research (IWR) – the USACE “think tank.”
The $47 million IDIQ contract will be active through March 2021.
“IWR leads USACE’s response in finding and applying innovative solutions to confront the challenges facing the nation’s water resources and infrastructure,” said Raed EL-Farhan, senior vice president and global water market sector lead.
“Our team is privileged to work alongside IWR and USACE leaders to solve the most challenging water infrastructure problems and to meet the nation’s growing need for water resources.”
Louis Berger’s research, analysis, future-casting and technical capabilities have been put to use by IWR through two consecutive 5-year IDIQ awards for water resources professional services.
Tasks under these contracts tackle almost every aspect of the USACE Civil Works missions.
Louis Berger has worked closely with IWR to study, strategize, analyze, plan, communicate and consider policy related to aquatic ecosystem restoration, flood risk management, recreation, water supply, navigation and regulatory issues.
